Today Is the Day 'Animal Mother' (album stream)
Published Oct 10, 2014Trying to avoid the obvious turn of phrase, let's just say that this is the moment fans of Today Is the Day have been waiting for. Just ahead of the official October 14 street date of the noise rock crew's Animal Mother, the band are streaming the whole thing online.
Packed with plenty of destructive moments, you can check out the eerie juxtaposition of spiralling six-string white noise and Steve Austin's whispered lines about "wearing a frown" on the title track, the almost penetrating mix of thrash and stoner licks and screeched-out vocals of "Sick of Your Mouth," rubbery doom waltz "Outlaw," and the ominous yet soft, strings- and glockenspiel-assisted chamber piece "Bloodwound."
You'll find the often detuned, demented offering in full down below, while you can pick up a copy next Tuesday via Southern Lord.
