The new Whores. album is fucking awesome

wg
I remember a time when a hard rocking album, angry at the world and everything in it, would get me through a day of highschool. Listening to it in my head, on my ipod, afterschool, I could just zone into it and say fuck this world which is not as good or as cool or as one of me as this music.

It made music transcendent. It made me realize that despite the fact that I lived in a world where everyone stepped all over each other and fucked everything while smiling big bright smiles and asking what the fuck was the matter with me, there were others, out there, like me.

Until recently (and perhaps with the exception of every Pissed Jeans album), I thought that kind of album was extinct (largely as a result of its absence from accessible media — I found this gem through the ‘suggestion’ feature of Spotify. (Don’t mean to advertise for Spotify or its services here, merely to indicate how difficult it is these days to find something I like)).

Whores.’ new album Gold. proves it is, and we are, still here. And we’re still pissed off at everyone and everything and we’re not gonna take it anymore. I mean, we are, but we’re still gonna shout about how pissed off we are and feel better and more connected to others after.

And that’s what Gold is. From start to finish, a tour de force of unleashed raw hyper angsty energy, mocking everything and everyone including itself. Screamed vocals, simple angry loud as fuck riffs, straight forward power drumming, disjointed one liner rants about stuff that sucks, pissed off noise rock at its finest. Whores., we salute you.
