Though the first wave of Grunge was officially laid to rest after Pearl Jam went Punk and Chris Cornell rolled through the Count Basie Theatre on a solo acoustic tour, it’s nice to see that in small pockets of the live music world there’s a still an influential air flowing through sound proofed lofts and concrete basement dwellings where kids covered in PBR, perspiration, and blood plasma can thrash by the fading embers of a fire lit in Seattle two decades ago. One of those ferocious spheres is Brooklyn, NY where such SIMGE favorites as Cinema Cinema, Big Ups, and Shellshag reside. Today we add another name to that short list of luminaries in Low Fat Getting High.
Low Fat Getting High’s brand of musical barbarism explodes from the sound system raw and untouched, cutting through cloaks of artificial apathy adorned by the kings of cool, and tapping into a more primitive head space that inspires pits of tangled limbs and mangled emotions. The outfit’s forthcoming EP, Bad Yoga, is a strange brew concocted in a Post-Hardcore pressure cooker, melting down a mixture of expedited Punk excursions, experimental noise jams, and metallic riffing of varied tempos.
The most comprehensive selection in the four track collection is powerful production titled “My Hate”, in which frontman Michael P. Sincavage invites the listener to experience the gross amount of detestation he has for a certain unnamed individual. Stream the SIMGE premiere of the five-minute journey of loathsome proportions below, as well as the EP’s lead single “Better Better Worse” here, and be sure to scoop up the short form release when it drops on Thursday (July 18th) via Dead Broke and Money Fire Records.
Low Fat Getting High will also celebrate the unveiling of Bad Yoga with a record release show at Brooklyn’s Shea Stadium on the 18th with the aforementioned Big Ups, Vulture Shit, and Flagland. Don’t miss it.
