    Yesss. It works very well on this track for sure. I couldn't say the same for NWE... what a mess.

    I didn't really like Shira too much until I popped it on through my headphones and took a walk, the production is messy but that's what I love about Glassjaw, those barely contained guitar riffs that suddenly gel into choruses with Daryl holding things together (or vice versa). It takes a bit of getting used to (EYWTKAS took ages for me to 'get') but its worth it. I can't wait.

    Tip Your Bartender > Mu Empire is one of my favorite examples of this.

    never heard anything from them until last night, shira sounds great to me. very deftonesish circa atf era. Strong early helmet vibe too, some great bands back then in NY.

    Few songs by any band of their kind mean as much to me as:



    You could scale a skyscraper with those chorus vocals. Breathtaking..

    Well said. Daryl soars on that. Don't play it live anymore, hope they bring it back.

    It's been in just about every one of their setlists over the last five years..?

    woops! I clearly was remembering the headline show setlists I looked at incorrectly. And then they didn't play it during their opening sets recently.

    These are a couple of my faves from them:












    These guys have so much material to check out, so if you're just coming in and learning more about the band, make sure to look up their EP's and singles because they can easily get lost in the mix. I believe Convectuoso is one of the best things they have ever done musically.

    Convectuoso is an absolutely beautiful song. I was lucky enough to catch it live once and it's really moving. I prefer the demo version, as dick as it was for RR to release it w.o the band's permission:



    Black Nurse is one my faves. I wear this shirt every 2 or 3 weeks:



    El Mark is my personal favorite non-album/EP song. It sounds really shitty live though w/o a 2nd guitarist. Beck really needs to rethink that whole thing. Alot of the material suffers w/him trying to do it all up there on stage. Studio version is fucking killer though:

    Really digging this one. It takes a few spins to seep in, but once it does...oh man. I love the raw, teeth-gnashing vibe and non-showy production of the whole thing. With DEP going on hiatus, these guys came back just in the nick of time.

    Also, the title track is the instrumental music from the official site's splash page. I knew it wasn't All Good Junkies like that one guy was claiming..

    It’s still the guitar clearly the guitar riff, just reused in a different way...

    I would be inclined to believe this based on how the album is mixed/frankensteined together. For instance, if you're not paying close attention to the track transitions, the beginning of "shira" sounds like "new white extremity" starting over. "citzen" begins with a riff that sounds like it's somewhere in the middle of the guitar solo from "shira".

    This thing is fucking amazing after 3 listens... and that bass!

    I wouldn't say it's the heaviest, because I'm inclined to say EYEWTKAS will always be their heaviest, but it's definitely fucking heavy. Heavier than Worship and Tribute, I'd say.

    Material Control is awesome! I started listening to Glassjaw last week when I saw all the news about the new record pop up everywhere. I'm so glad I did, because their stuff is brilliant. New White Extremity is a fucking badass opener, I love how once the album starts, it doesn't let up. Every track flows into the next perfectly too. There's so many wonderfully dissonant guitar and driving, dubby bass parts, I feel like I need more listens just to wrap my head around everything!

    I'm having a hard time liking this, and that makes me sad because I love Glassjaw.

    I guess this has been up since Friday, but was just made public an hour or so ago (109 views):



    EDIT: So notifications were extremely half-assed, there are vignettes for 10 of the tracks from Material Control available on VEVO.

    I can upload and PM u a link to the mp3's of it tomorrow night. That being said, I think it would be fairly easy to find via torrent sites, even public ones, no?

    Thank you!

    It's weird how it hasn't popped up on Bandcamp or something yet, cause it's way too good to be left as a vinyl/gig only record!

    They were selling via their website/MerchDirect last year, because that's how I ordered a copy. The website only seems to have the new album available unless I'm missing something.
