SMOGTOWN: domesticviolenceland: CDEP

Smogtown continues to blow me away. They’re like surgeons who can cut the cancer that is the suburbs out of us, hold it up and show us what a gross, mutated tumor it really is, then put it back in our body and say, “Think about that.” And not just lyrically – though the lyrics are pretty insightful. The music is so rich and textured and rocking that it feels like a tumor growing in your gut. It’s disturbingly amazing. This release is just a three song EP, with one song that’ll be on their upcoming album and two songs that you can’t get anywhere else. It’s only seven minutes long, so I have a hard time not listening to it twice in a row every time I play it. And that just makes the tumor grow bigger.
