(31) Days of Good//12.3.15

sleater kinney - no cities to love

Welcome back ladies. “Sleater-Kinney are one of the great rock bands and No Cities To Love is the perfect comeback: a treat for die-hard fans as well, a perfect introduction for newcomers ­– and what a journey that’ll be.” (via Drowned In Sound)

Sleater-Kinney – Hey Darling [from No Cities to Love]




Rock. And. Roll.

♩ Mourn – Marshall [from Mourn]

See above and add extra fuzz, speed, and volume.

White Reaper – Make Me Wanna Die [from White Reaper Does It Again]




Powerful and to the point.

DILLY DALLY – Desire [from Sore]




I dabble in the black arts from time to time, but I wouldn’t consider myself a legit metal fan. Deafheavan’s 2013 LP,  Sunbather, was a surprise favorite of mine and they’ve done it again with this year’s New Bermuda. I can’t really put a finger on it, but there’s something about Deafheaven that speaks to me. I have absolutely no idea what George Clark and company are screaming about, but I love it and the guitar and drum work are irresistible.
