Tropical F*** Storm
Tropical F*** Storm is Gareth Liddiard of The Drones joining forces with bandmate Fiona Kitschin and two other gals to make some extraordinarily abrasive yet undeniably catchy candy-coated Aussie sludge punk. Most importantly, in an age of underlying dread, I feel like too few albums have really nailed that queasy feeling of anxiety that permeates life on Earth right now. You can’t do that just by being loud or yelling about politics. That’s all well and good, but it’s rarely visceral. This album, though, IS. The bizarre
tunings and chords, the wailing backing harmonies that sound like a coven chanting hellish incantations, the filthy percussion, the other-worldly synth sections – this record FEELS like humanity cannibalizing itself. It’s remarkably perfect in its madness.
Modest Mouse was formed in 1993 in Issaquah, Washington. and over the last decade has become the indie rock standard; one of few bands capable of treading the narrow path where massive popularity is possible without sacrificing longtime fans.
