Norma Jean Release New Song “Landslide Defeater”
It must be Second Single Day and I didn’t get the memo: first, Opeth released the second single from their forthcoming album, and now Norma Jean have done the same! Release the second single from their own forthcoming album, I mean. Not release the second single from Opeth’s forthcoming album. Although that would certainly be a unique publicity ploy.
ANYWAY, the new Norma Jean jam is called “Landslide Defeater,” and it’s good stuff. It’s got a punky, spunky, catchy and anthemic chorus, but the best part comes around 2:23. That’s when a quiet, slinky mid-section pauses just before a complete explosion of FUCK YOU that feels perfectly designed to inspire stage diving and crowd surfing and moshing until you’re so sweaty you look like you just got caught in a hurricane. Like I said, it’s good stuff!
