Foot Village – “Make Memories” – [Northern-spy]
Brutal, haunting drum rampage invades yer brain with screaming onslaught of the merciless dead.
LA-based drum quartet. Hyper Rock ‘n’ Roll from these four screamers: Citizen Kinsman, Citizen Lee, Citizen Taylor-Fantastic, and Citizen Rowan. Self-described as “the first city after the foreseeable Apocalypse,” but sounds a lot more like jammy noisy rock music to me. This is their first album after a trilogy about their post-apocalyptic world, so enjoy!
6 tracks altogether, starting off with an epic 12-minuter that gets a little redundant by the end, but still a solid track with everyone kinda screaming together at points with that chugga-chugga drum line. The female vocals that sneak in are haunting, while the male vocals are more raw and guttural. I like the shorter tracks, which seem to be more fast paced, kinda get you going/pumped tracks (2,3,4). The last two are a bit slower, more drawn out, both with the addition of another instrument (tuba on 5 and vibraphone on 6). Play to your hearts content.
