Exclusive Track Premiere: Gaytheist, “Consumer”


The best thing about the current noise rock revival is… well, the current noise rock revival! We’re fucking loving it.

Bands like Portland’s Gaytheist remind us exactly why: clocking in at a zippy one minute and fifty four seconds, “Consumer” — from their forthcoming album Let’s Jam Again Soon — is a furious maelstrom of everything that’s right about the genre, which Gaytheist’s Facebook bio describes as “fuck if I know.” It’s fast, it’s furious, it’s visceral, it’s got those skronky, punky, bendy guitar riffs, and the vocals are recorded in such a way that is sounds as if Jason Rivera is screaming just inches away from your face. In short: it’s glorious.

Stream “Consumer” below. Let’s Jam Again Soon comes out on June 16th via Good to Die Records; pre-order here.
