Once upon a time, I had a radio show that only played bands currently performing in the District. That show is super dead, so we’ve resurrected it (with way more words and far less radio) in the form of this column. Every day I’ll review a song from a band playing in D.C. that night. The rules are, 1. I can only listen to the song once and 2. I only have until the end of the song to finish my review.
GAMBLES – VICIOUS TIMES
This sounds incredibly depressing. This is straight up funeral style dirge music. I like it. This sounds like spoken word poetry set to funeral music. I have no idea what’s happening in this song. Is this a breakup song? If so, then it is the most arty and pretentious breakup song I’ve ever heard. I just keep liking it more and more. This is great. This could not be better. Vicious times, indeed.
