Paws - Youth Culture Forever / by Rollie Agado

Memorial Day, 2014 and I'm on a return flight from Seattle to San Antonio.


Saved a special record for today's entry...  it's an album (Youth Culture Forever) by a band called Paws.

It doesn't get formally released for sale until June 3rd I think... but I've been streaming it for weeks now.

I fucking LOVE the production on this album.   It kinda reminds me a little bit of the Detachment Kit... only because the tracks can go from a gentle strum to a roaring buzz in a heartbeat.

I can't stress how great the drums and guitars sound on this album... they laid the vocals down really nicely behind the fuzz too.

I've been trying to find more time in the day to really listen to the lyrical content of the album.  There's a lot of interesting heart break themes that can kinda get lost in sound of the album.

On some tracks like: Owls Talons Clenching My Heart - one can really get lost into the heartbreak mood it sets off..  then they turn around and play something really catchy like the song Give Up.

I can't wait to see these guys live.
