Blood on the Wall: "Dead Edge of Town"

Blood on the Wall: "Gone"

I've already written a little bit about the new Blood on the Wall record here. Awesomer isn't extraordinary, or anything, but it is one of the better straight-up rock albums I've heard this year. As I mentioned at the main site, they sound strongly like something you'd hear on a good college radio station back in the late '80's or early '90's, echoing any number of classic indie-rock bands, but without sounding too much like any specific influence. They're a throw-back that still sounds fresh. Yes sir. "Dead Edge of Town" is a bubblegum approximation of Live Skull/Kim Gordon no-wavish rock, whereas "Gone" recasts "Paranoid" as Homesteadian jangle-punk. Practically every other song on Awesomer resembles one of these two, which is not in any way a bad thing. I stand by the three Earl Anthony review.
