I’m sure in many, many, MANY years, 2016 will be studied as the “what the hell happened in THAT year?” as a history module. 2017 has got to be better, right? Thankfully, there was some good music this year, amongst all the badness (Ken McCray dying was a total bummer and you know, the other stuff) so, what better way than countdown my top 10 albums of 2016.
As we reach the halfway point of this bonkers year, it’s time to recap on some of the best tracks/noises/sounds/farting through a walkman we’ve heard at Keep It Fast towers this year. Join us on this voyage, where I sort of repeat stuff you’ve perhaps already read, but that doesn’t matter as we’re just killing time at the moment.
The Black Queen occupies a different space altogether compared to the guitar-smashing, flame-throwing extremism of a certain New Jersey mob of mathcore merchants. Puciato is joined by former Nine Inch Nails/Puscifer sound man, Joshua Eustis and former DEP (and Kesha) collaborator Steven Alexander to create the eclectic and electric rush that is Fever Daydream.
