“The Post-Trash 60” is a guide to some (60) of our favorite releases so far with a diverse range of rock music’s many sub-genres and hip-hop, from extreme metal to lo-fi bedroom pop and all that falls between. We’ve got “buzz bands” worth the buzz, self-released hidden-gems, all the weird international post-punk and noise rock you could ever want, and of course all the artistic punk influenced indie we know and love.
The relentless creative output of Brooklyn’s Water From Your Eyes and This Is Lorelei is something to treasure, an endless source of inspiration from the minds of Nate Amos and Rachel Brown. While the musicians have both been busy between these bands, Thanks For Coming, and beyond, a new split single has emerged.
The Mall, The Country and The Dirt, The Dancing are transcendent, alive, breathing. The double EP swells in ambient solemnity and contracts in melodic elegance, as pieces of coherent pop brilliance are encased between swirling panoramic experiments, highlighting Amos’ acute sense of sequencing and pacing.
“We Are Taking You Home,” the second single from The Mall, The Country, is a tender and reflective companion to the record’s first single, “Score Heal Score.” Where the latter was discordant and tangled in its own looped progression, “We Are Taking You Home” is a more serene and tranquil meditation.
