Modern Life is War Share Volume Two in Tribulation Worksongs Series

Friday, 14 September 2018 Written by Huw Baines

Modern Life is War have shared the second leg of their Tribulation Worksongs series.

The hardcore band have shoved a brace of new songs into the world, with another handmade, hand-assembled 7” set to follow through Deathwish around the end of October. The release was recorded with Luke Tweedy at Flat Black Studios and mixed by Kurt Ballou at God City.

Track one is called Revival Fires and will immediately strike a chord with those who appreciate their more melodic side, in line with a staple like D.E.A.D.R.A.M.O.N.E.S. or Health, Wealth and Peace, from their most recent LP ‘Fever Hunting’.

The second, Indianapolis Talking Blues, is driven by a spoken-word approach from vocalist Jeff Eaton, whose lyrics are encased in a mournful, almost alt-country instrumental. “What makes a man kill? Is it noble when it is his order?” he asks. “Is it pitiful when it is his will?”

td#right {display:none !important;} Illustration: Samuel Davies There’s this great indie-rock song going around called Hope You Like Getting Old. It’s by the Seattle band Subways on the Sun and its video is full of stuff that used to clutter my shelves when I was a kid - a VHS copy of The Empire Strikes Back, an Optimus Prime figure, a lava lamp like the one my girlfriend got me for my 17th birthday. Watching it is to submit to that addictive, rose-tinted sadness that’s so hot right now. It’s Proust with power chords.

After all, why should we be impressed by the execution of dog-eared blueprints?
Deaf Havana - Rituals (Album Review)
Mon 20 Aug 2018
The intro to Deaf Havana’s ‘Rituals’ is a short ambient piece called Wake but, in truth, they might well have kicked things off with John Williams’ ominous theme music from the film Jaws. Having turned their back on everything that made them one of Britain’s finest young bands, the five piece have totally and utterly jumped the shark here.
