Well that, my friend, is the newest album from The Gotobeds, entitled BLOOD // SUGAR // SECS // TRAFFIC. It's their second full-length LP and their first for Sub Pop. Whoa, whoa, please slow down. I'm already completely lost. What you just said sounded like a stream of complete gibberish. Okay, I'll lay it out for you and if you have any questions could you yell them at me?
SOUNDS GOOD. The Gotobeds formed vaguely around 2009 in Pittsburgh and play a mutant strain of rock music that is often filed under punk, indie rock, or 99-cent discount bin. WAIT, THE GOTOBEDS? I HEARD THEY WERE KNUCKLEHEADS! Only if the knuckle is the part of the human body that contains the brains. Much like their previous releases on underground stalwart labels like Mind Cure and 12XU, this new album artfully slips intelligence and experimentation into a dying art form. It's a harder feat than you'd think.
And sure, their live shows have often been compared to an "all night party where I feared for my life and the lives of everybody in the five block radius," and their recorded output is akin "to the sonic manifestos of four men deprived of human love and raised on beer and Swell Maps, Mission of Burma, and old Fall records." But what you get with The Gotobeds, delivered in spades on this album, is smart, noisy rock with just the right amount of stupid.
I THINK I UNDERSTAND. BLOOD // SUGAR // SECS // TRAFFIC IS THE GREATEST ALBUM SINCE THE LAST GOTOBEDS RECORD? Yes. Now please stop yelling.
