Summer is going well. It's a hot one, and we finally got an air conditioner upstairs so we're no longer sweating at night. Can't sleep when I'm hot, that's for sure.
I've been listening to a lot of the usual this summer; The Hold Steady, The National, Titus Andronicus, and even my old mall punk favorite Taking Back Sunday.
I gotta say though - I've been in the mood for something heavy, yet not angsty and deafheaven have done it with their Sunbather album.
It's as if white metal was a genre, or perhaps this is post-metal as metal is kind of dead. I don't really care to describe music using genres, and I don't really want to describe how it feels as that may be too cheesy. Either way it seems like deafheaven is pioneering something new and altogether exciting.
You should give it a listen. I think it's rad.
