F*CK THE FACTS: IF THIS IS WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE TO “DRIFT,” I’D BE HORRIFIED TO HEAR THEM PUT SOME EFFORT INTO IT
When I think of the act of drifting — and I mean, like, while relaxing on a lake or whatever, not that thing that street racers do — I think of soothing relaxation, letting my muscles go limp, and generally putting no effort whatsoever into what I’m doing. And the new Fuck the Facts song, “Drift” — which our friends at Brooklyn Vegan are streaming right now — certainly does not seem like the sound of soothing relaxation and limp muscles.
It does, however, seem like the sound of awesome, furious, face-melting grind. Which is probably a good thing, because if Fuck the Facts released something that sounded like, say, Buckethead’s “Whitewash” — let alone released such a track on an album called Die Miserable — we would all probably feel kinda confused.
Jump in the pit here, then come back and let us know what you think (as though you needed an invitation). Relapse will release Die Miserable on October 11.
