In Philly on Saturday. Tremendous. Swami was on fire. They tore through an hour set.

The sound guy did them no favors. Way too heavy on the bass, and the super high end. Disco sound system, subs too loud, standing waves all over the place.

I should've been up by the stage.

Flew to Bristol from Dublin to see them last week, and fucking hell, they were extraordinary. John Reis uses force from every inch of his body to play that guitar. Just amazing stuff, very excited for the new LP now.

When I walk through town with them pumping through my earbuds, I am the strongest and tallest human on earth, and my presence is an extended middle finger to the ills that surround me. Colossally NOT CRAP.

I only actually listened to that single posted above, I messed up on my initial post.

Early Against Me! isn't bad at all and that single isn't bad either. It was just an observation. I remember hearing past Hot Snakes stuff years ago (my friend Shane would play a record by these dudes a couple of times a week at the record store we worked at) and kind of coming to the same conclusion.

The album cover is sick for Jericho Sirens .

Man, I totally thought the new record was a split they were doing with some band called Jericho Sirens.

New record is streaming on the Subpop website for people who pre-ordered it. So far so good! Pumped to be seeing them in March.

I need to listen to the whole thing. It doesn’t seem as dissonant as their other stuff. More like party jams or something? I bet if I saw them live it would all click. Not writing the whole record off, just my impressions from the two tracks they’ve released. I was expecting something more along the lines of Stay In School, which I loved, but that might be more of an outlier for this period. It would make sense given that it was released on a comp.
