New EP: Mental Blood Focus
There have been many times lately when really all I want to hear is the sound of a guitar with a bunch of wood and metallic stuff shoved through the strings, run through a bunch of delays and a Rat pedal. And then there is the rest of the time, when I just want to hear the song "Some Guys Have All The Luck." So, one stop shopping here, basically.
"Skullpile Sunrise" is named after a song by the same name by 90s Charlottesville art-metal band The Middle Way (featuring members of Hedonistic Cravings). We did a show together, and it was also the first show of the (can I say it?) extremely twee indie-pop band Charming. After Charming's set, I looked at their set list and I was very impressed that one of their songs was named "Skullpile Sunrise"; it took me longer than I would like to admit to realize it was actually The Middle Way's set list. But I still think that is one of my favorite song titles of all time.
