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.
TITLE TRACKS – TURN YOUR FACE
This song is fine. I am not hating it. I will probably never listen to it again. I am mostly impressed by this lyric video. There are a lot of good words in this song. Like denizen. Plenary. “Patent leather pall.” Whatever the fuck that means. Actually, what does plenary mean? I just Googled it. It means unqualified; absolute. Cool? Many of these lines sound pretentious and mean very little. I like that in a band (hence why I love Pierce the Veil so much). This is growing on me. This is okay.
