Alright, well this is a bit of a late-pass, but Propagandhi put out a new album recently and it’s preeeee good. It keeps getting compared to Supporting Caste, whether it be for song structure/content or just sheer goodness, and I guess that’s valid. On Failed States the band forgoes the use of a lot of their weedly-meedly guitar gymnastics in exchange for a balls-to-the wall hyper chugging palm-muted foundation. It’s definitely one of the most energetic singles I’ve head this year, and that’s to be expected.
