VINCAS: Blood Bleeds: LP

The album reminds me a lot of NickCave’s early band The Birthday Party. I’m sure these guys have to be sick of the NickCave reference, but it’s a fair cop. The songs are comprised of dark, bass-heavy riffs. The singer has a deep, resonant howl that surges to the music. It’s hard to pull something like this off without sounding derivative. The album has a lot of energy and they do it well. People who can’t get enough of that Birthday Party sound would enjoy this, for sure.
