TRIUMPH OF LETHARGY SKINNED ALIVE TO DEATH: Bird Songs: LP

A Seattle underground supergroup if there ever was one (Temple of the Dog?), TOLSATD began as a two-member experiment between Spencer Moody and Corey Brewer, setting out to make a sparse, lonely, and chorus-free garagey drone. In the years since they’ve grown up and out; adding three more members, bringing bombast to the mire, bellows to the heartbroken whispers, and choruses. Stretched legs, a dash of pretension, and some solid rockers. I have a feeling their next record is going to break necks and hopefully send them on a tour. –Andrew Flanagan
