E.P. Review: HMLTD – Hate Music Last Time Delete

AB03CA7C-BBAD-48D9-9704-0B6B2607F6A5

Artist: HMLTD 

EP: Hate Music Last Time Delete 

Genre: Synth-Pop/Art Rock/Post-Punk/Glam Rock

 Music fans have unfortunately been subjected to this ridiculous idea that “Rock is dead” from many music publications. Of course, that is completely absurd. The countless “Indie Rock” bands, “Post-Punk” bands, “Metal” bands, and “Garage Rock” bands all continue to breathe life into a vague term like “Rock.” An emerging scene that is completely enthralling and continues to disprove “Rock” naysayers is the South London scene. A scene that consists of up and coming bands such as “Goat Girl,” “Sorry,” “Hotel Lux,” the already revered “Shame,” and a unique as Hell band that goes by the name of “HMLTD.” What separates this band from their contemporaries is their huge ambition to incorporate elements of just about any damn genre that resonates with them, and like many of the greats, this leads to the band being impossible to categorize. This 6 piece band have been at it for a few years now, releasing ambitious single after ambitious single. The band have garnered a huge following of music fans who yearn to hear something new and innovative, but one question remains, and that question is “When the Hell are they going to release a full-length album?!” Well, we still don’t have a full-length, but we have been gifted a new E.P. by the band titled Hate Music Last Time Delete to satisfy our hunger. This E.P. opens with without a doubt the band’s most accessible song yet. Incorporating modern production that leans toward a “Trap” flavor, “Pictures Of You” might sound trendy on the surface with it’s catchiness and dramatic building up of the chorus, but the subject matter is far from friendly. It’s dark, but it is completely relatable in this Internet age we live in that is driven by social media. Lead singer Henry Spychalski sings from the point of view of someone addicted to pleasuring himself to photos of others on social media, and as much as this is a detailing of one’s shameful addiction, it’s also an important commentary on the loss of privacy thanks to everyone’s willingness to post photos of themselves online. Oh yeah, and if this isn’t dark enough for you, there’s also an even more disturbing music video to reflect this dark reality. The following track “Proxy Love” finds the band getting weirder but their attention to “Pop” structure keeps the band from going off into the deep end. This track is zany, it’s odd, it’s glamorous, and it features everything we’ve grown to love about the band from their previous singles. As bizarre as this track is, the “Synth-Pop” dominance and catchy vocal structures present to us how “Pop” music can have substance, and that’s one of the many reasons why this band is brilliant, their attention to catchiness. Their fearlessness to create a catchy chorus even after their descent into musical madness is immensely impressive. The following tracks “Mannequin” and “Apple of My Eye” carry a similar vibe, but this four track E.P. is far from being one-dimensional. The guitar riffs are very reflective of “Post-Punk.” The synth lines are laden with 80’s Glam, and the vocals heavily reflect “Goth” acts such as “Christian Death” or “Virgin Prunes.” The lyrical content doesn’t bombard the listener with hard to decipher metaphors, instead it’s blatantly obvious that these songs deal with self-love, addiction, and even the feeling of being in love with a mannequin and wishing it could do the things a living being can do (I hope Frank Zito was an inspiration.) Just four tracks in length, this E.P. proves that “HMLTD” are without a doubt the most intriguing band at the moment, and this is only the beginning of what may be a fruitful legacy.

Album Review: Death Grips – Year of the Snitch

F0D6F83B-E3BD-4C3B-936F-F48B3A3FE790

Artist: Death Grips

Album: Year of the Snitch 

Genre: Industrial Hip Hop/Experimental 

Rating: 8/10

 With a band like “Death Grips,” a band that have built a career on abrasion and dark subject matter, there’s a high risk of becoming a gimmick. Sure their music is brilliant and one might even say they’re the most important band of the decade, but there’s always that chance that a band like this can succumb to expectations and tropes they have created for themselves, but as the band have proven plenty of times in the past, they really don’t care about satisfying their fanbase. Their new album Year of the Snitch is further proof of that. After years of reinvention after reinvention, the band have yet again reinvented themselves. Sure this is unmistakably a “Death Grips” album, it’s noisy as Hell, and MC Ride continues to deliver aggressive and paranoid vocals with cryptic lyrics that are nearly impossible to decipher, but this is surprisingly their most Experimental and bizarre work yet. If their previous album Bottomless Pit was the band going back to the basics of their debut The Money Store, then Year of the Snitch is the band expressing to us all that this is a second incarnation of themselves. This album is a sinister odyssey that will leave the listener uneasy and confused. There are “A Clockwork Orange” sounding synths all throughout this album, and at times it even sounds like the band is being possessed by “The Residents.” Oh yeah this album is bizarre, and it is glorious.
