Holy shit! I think Touché Amoré’s latest is even better than last year’s “… To The Beat Of A Dead Horse”! They rip through 13 songs in less than 20 minutes on “Parting The Sea Between Brightness And Me”. While everything is still heavy as fuck, they’ve subtly introduced more melody into the songs which makes them hit home even harder.
Jeremy Bolm is still trying to exorcise all of his demons at once in two minutes or less while dispensing all of his unwanted organs at the same time. Raw, passionate and frenetic are just a couple of words that come to mind while listening to this album. If you are into bands like Defeater and La Dispute, you should have no problem getting jiggy with Touché Amoré.
Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
