One of my favorite local releases this year comes from Past Lives. The Strange Symmetry EP is full of explosive punk and brooding, electro-tinged psycho-rock. I wrote once:
“Reverse the Curse” is a crescendo-building mad march that evokes an image (in my head, anyway) of Blilie high-kicking across the stage à la David Lee Roth, drum major hat atop his head and baton flailing wildly. Yowza. The final track, “Chrome Life” begins with a wonderfully cacophonous guitar squeal behind a wide snare beat. Henderson swells the song with a baritone guitar reminiscent of “Knight Rider” and it quickly escalates to something mysterious and volatile. [Full Review]
Cost: $5 maybe??
