Those good people at SuperFi Records have delivered more goods in the form of a new split EP featuring the delights of Stuntman and Art of Burning Water.
Brilliantly self-described as “Drunk Wikipedia Farming” (aka, the kings of concept-core) the Stockholm/Illinois/Toronto trio that is Down I Go still exist as a band. Despite them all living in different countries, the simple matter of distance, time and space isn’t going to stop them from creating music.
Quick round-up of some albums I’ve enjoyed but didn’t get to write about from earlier in the year. Fidlar and their surf-punk, beer-drinking hijinks that make up Too; Sleaford Mods and their brand of curt misanthropy on Key Markets and lastly, Loma Prieta, painting a warped picture with Self Portrait. Enjoy.
Funeral For A Friend have decided to call it a day. Deep within me somewhere, the 19 year old me is quite sad at this news as back then they were my favourite band. I still remember buying their debut album, Casually Dressed and Deep in Conversation back in 2003 (time has ravaged me) and playing it to death.
HUGE NEWS. Down I Go are back. Well, they’re going to record an album at least, which is excellent. For those unfamiliar, Down I Go made/make concept albums (dinosaurs, disasters, robots, tyrants and gods) and are generally brilliant. They split up a few years back due to band members all living in different countries.
