POST-TRASH VOL. 4
“Gravity” was the last track written (and ordered) on Zeiguer’s debut, Old Ghost. It’s a fantastic song, and it shows up again on Faraway Business in an alternate form. On first listen, it sounds stripped back, with much of the production and arrangements of the original removed to make the song even more intimate than it was before.
Cheekface’s cover takes this classic Elliott Smith song and conveys a grittier approach. The tempo is slightly ramped up and acoustic guitars are replaced by fuzzy electric tones, while maintaining a majority of the original, memorable riffs.
Forty tracks were handpicked for the Volume Four RAICES Benefit compilation promo, among them being Pllush’s “Soft in The Dark (1st Version)”. Out of all the exceptional songs that were chosen, Pllush holds a space in my heart ever since they became a member of my musical sphere years ago.
The band are heading out on a West Coast tour in May and in celebration will release …Trample The Cross Underfoot…, another tour tape consisting of four new songs and a pair of demos. In true Exhalants fashion, it’s another essential recording from out their practice shed, low in fidelity but absolutely rattling in tone and overt fury.
In a new weekly feature that explores the artists on the Post-Trash Volume Four compilation, Niccolo Porcello shares his thoughts on what makes Snakeskin such a special band. We paired his feature together with the premiere of the “Cloudbusting” music video.
