It turns out he was selling saviors door to door.
The Divorce - Samoas Revenge - The Divorce are current hotshit next-big-thing kids from Seattle. Their debut album There Will Be Blood Tonight, from which todays tracks come, is a romp through punked out pop music that echoes Pavement, the Pixies, Fugazi, and other presskit platitudes that I won't bother with from here on out. What you need to know about this song is that it builds itself by interspersing classic shriekey hardcore breakdowns with the BATMAN THEME SONG. Thats right, campy 60s batman + hardcore breaks = AWESOME. Mosh away good fellows.
The Divorce - Redcoats - Redcoats though, is where the band hits it's stride, and offers promise of whats to come for the band. The drums have that heavy, loping quality that Brendan Canty has made so distinctive, but the guitars have the skitter of an older post punk band - or perhaps a more high energy pavement track. But the chorus? What is this? could it be... pop-punk? It's certainly nasal enough... and it has that bounce to it, that bleating, high-low guitar thats associated with the worst excesses of the skaters at your local shopping mall. Thing is, that whole idea was never bad to begin with - it's just been exploited by bands without the talent to use it sparingly, to pull it off properly. The Divorce certainly aren't ready to take on the world yet, but they're well on their way to it.
