“The Furbid Beast came from beyond the sea of brimstone, through the fiery waterfalls, from the heart of darkness in the valley of the eternally damned. Released upon this mortal coil, rivers of blood will flood the land and a dark age of suffering shall begin.” - what some guy told me at the gas station the other day.
We’ve only got a couple of weeks left until horrifying twenty-ten becomes terrifying twenty-eleven. I’m not sure what my favorite records from this year have been. Against Me! put out kind of a bold pop record to start the summer, and then Off With Their Heads, sure, and the Mixtapes, and the new RVIVR that came out a couple of weeks ago was kind of good-ish. 2010 has been my second year of grad school, so it feels like I may have missed out on some good records along the way. I may have some catching up to do in the New Year.
Also: Andrew Jackson Jihad covers Off With Their Heads. Weird.
Also Plus: How Dare You (Fla.) posted some neat-o cover art for their next record. Their first record, Comfort Road, was kind of good-ish. They’re kind of like “what if Dillinger Four were a power rock band?”
Next Monday on Setbacks: A stunning revelation, a curious development at the witching hour, a shriek from the parlor, and a subtle escalation of terror…
