STORMSHADOW: Set on Destroy: LP

May 08, 2013

Stormshadow were an early ‘00s New Brunswick three-piece and this is their long-delayed final LP. They wrote short, shambolic songs that changed moods and vocalists every few measures. You get a guy bellowing from inside a half-empty soda full of cigarette butts, a woman with a snotty voice, thrashin’ breaks, swampy distorted bass, single note stuff where the drums hit with the guitar pick… I’m thinking Minutemen, Hickey, a skipping Dillinger 4 record, and how much I want to go to one of their shows and spill beer on myself.
