‘The fight against routine. Stuck. Trying to make the commute on I-35. Stuck. The piece of gum underneath the movie seat you’re sitting in? Well, that’s stuck too. The cycle. The routine.’

That’s what Super Thief have to say about their newest release, the nearly impenetrable “Stuck”. Throughout ten songs, this Austin-based outfit deals in noisy outburst that constantly border on becoming completely unhinged, peppered with plenty dissonant guitars, pummeling drums, unexpected hints of melody and vocals that seem intent on punishing you.

 

If you appreciate  the releases by labels like Amphetamine Reptile and Touch & Go from back in the day, then you are guaranteed to… well, enjoy doesn’t really seem like the right word but yeah…. Enjoy “Stuck”, a release that has as much to do with Shellac as it does with The Jesus Lizard. It might hurt, but fuck… this is friggin’ good stuff.
