Dark Ages - Vapor

There's something disjointed and unsettling about this new LP from Dark Ages that I can't quite put my finger on.  The vibe of mid west hardcore bands of years gone by is present, but DA has added some odd rhythms and off time syncopation that make this Lp a tough one to pigeon hole.

 In all honesty, it has taken a few listens for this record to start making sense to me, but I have found that  the records that become long time favorites are often times the records that leave me a  bit confused upon  initial listen, but for one reason or another  keep me coming back for more.  I'm thinking that Vapor is going to be one of those records. Now excuse me, I need to go spin this Lp a few more times...Dave G.

  1. I totally agree. The first time I listened to this record it made me super uncomfortable. Now I can't stop listening to it, and I love it. Something about the discomfort is causes keeps me coming back.
