The Conformists - Three Hundred
Dissonant and sloppy, but sure of their genius, The Conformists make post-rock as solid and sure as any your crazy uncle made in his basement while roped to the boiler. Steve Albini is at the controls of this glorious mess, one that reaches back to rock’s primal core, and shoves its stinky fist right in your face. Originally formed in 1996, this is a quasi-reunion of original members, all of whom seemed to have vividly remembered why they hooked up in the first place. From the riotous opener, "Laundry Hepburn," to the aptly named closer, "You’re Welcome," this is a mighty slab of noise and frantic juice that sounds like it was recorded in a hole where the only point of exit was having to prove that you are alive and pissed enough to do real damage upon release. Everyone you know needs this record.
