You´ve got mail! with Tom Hanks is a fantastic movie. Shows spot on what can happen in the modern era with new ways of communication. This is what happened to me boys and girls. Couple of weeks ago I got an email from Dave Brown the drummer of Career Suicide, best band out of Canada since Rush, asking about an obscure swedish band he read about in Peter Jandreus book The Encylopedia of Swedish Punk 1977-1987. He asked about Framfor Flotet which I´ve never heard so I couldn´t help Dave out. I saw my chance to kiss some ass since I absolutely love CS. First time I heard ém I got so excited I posted their split LP with Jade Whitey without even thinking if it was ok or not. So this time(after turning brown after the ass kissing) I asked if it was ok to publish the new tracks they have up from their latest release on the KBD blog since I thought they where totally amazing. Dave was kind enough to send me the vinyl in favor of me giving him a link to pick up Lamas first 7″.
So here´s a vinyl rip of Cherry Beach which dosen´t sound really as good as the tracks on the CS site. Mostly cause digital recordings dosen´t transfer that well to vinyl. It really has to be an analog recording to get the full potential. You can hear it get´s a bit too distorted on the vinyl compared to the digital to digital rips on the CS site. Some may even thinks it sounds a lot better with the added distortion. Cherry Beach is really fucking fantastic. The track roars and oases from start to finish. I think I´ve not heard such intense vocals since Get It Away with SSD. I would call this a classic to be. Really. Double Life is good but feels like it goes on routine a little bit and the cover is a nice addition though I would’ve preferred an original.
Career Suicide is one of them bands that manage to make great songs no matter if it´s mid paced or in traditional HC speed. I´ve said it before but I strongly believe it has to do with their wide taste in music. These guys sure plays Hardcore but their musical influences comes from all over.
NOTE! The a-side is actually the test press of Vicious Visions!!! YES! All the way from Canada.
