Album Review

Reviewed 2019-01-06 
Dreamy shoegaze album with soft male vocals. A soundtrack for when you feel like giving up, Dominic Palermo sings on uplifting riffs about dark themes including mental illness and finding inspiration through self-destruction. All the songs are goosebumps-inducing & moody. The album name, which is slang for fighting, is a phrase Palermo learned while in prison. However, he’s repurposed it to mean rolling with the punches.

All FCC clean.
Try 1, 3, 6, 7 (WOW definitely #7).

1. Zero Day - 3:57 - Stormy intro, melancholy, gets even more emotional at 2:28 with backing vocals.

2. Blue Line Baby - 4:31 - Thundering percussion & riff. Buzzing tune about a girl he knew who OD’d when she was 13.

3. You Wind Me Up - 4:00 - Sounds cute & romantic, almost indie pop-y.

4. Plastic Migraine - 4:44 – Slow, with a trance-like melody.

5. Us/We/Are - 3:35 - Stronger, more indie-esque vocals, but with emo Joyce Manor-esque guitar, bass, & percussion.

6. Hail on Palace pier - 4:49 - Cello? Wonderful buildup with instruments and vocals.

7. I Hate the Flowers - 4:22 - My fave!!! So moody. Leering guitars, melody & vocals soar in chorus.

8. The Carpenter’s Son - 7:46 – Slowest, quietest track with solemn, march-like drums.

9. (Hope) is Just Another Word with a Hole in It - 5:49 - Stoner rhythm on gentle vocals.
