Song of the Day - June 9, 2006

Oh, how I enjoy The Beatings! It has been much too long. Late last year, Boston's The Beatings released Holding on to Hand Grenades and it is a killer album. Shades of Mission of Burma, The Fall, and The Effigies can be heard in their music. This is truly great stuff. "Feel Good Ending" has distinct Mission of Burma leanings and is one of my favorite tracks, while "Remedial Math Rock" reminds me of Mark E. Smith and The Fall. The absolute best track is "This City Is Killing Me." The sonic assault that can be heard in The Effigies is heard throughout this brilliant tune by The Beatings. Click here to listen.
