Throwback Thursday: Death From Above 1979

July 10, 2014

0 Comments

Death From Above 1979 are in the midst of a comeback (hear a new song here, see them at Fun Fun Fun Fest in November), so it seems to be as good a time as any to revisit You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine.

I spent a lot of time awkwardly dancing and/or thrashing around to the album when I was in college, so it holds a special place in my heart.  Although, it’s not all just about nostalgia when it comes DFA 1979, as You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine does actually feature a really great set of songs (with stellar standouts like Blood On Our Hands and Black History Month) and is one of the better dance-punk albums out there.

Crank it and remember.

Quick story!  At SXSW many years ago I watched Sebastien Grainger (then playing with the Mountains) throw a guitar at a volunteer after getting his set cut short at the Saddle Creek showcase. I’ll never forget the enormous amount of rage and confusion that was all over the volunteer’s face.  I’ll also never forget how Grainger then grabbed the guitar and smashed it into a million pieces while yelling about how you never cut the sound on a rock star.  Good times.

Quickdraw: Interpol, We Were Promised Jetpacks, The Rural Alberta Advantage, Ex Hex, Death From Above 1979

Music!  Enjoy.

:Interpol – All The Rage Back Home:  If you’ve been waiting around for Interpol to rally up and become impressive again, then I think you’re going to be really happy with this stellar single. Here’s hoping that the rest of their new album is just as good.  El Pintor is due out September 9 via Matador.  See the band at ACL in October.

:We Were Promised Jetpacks – Safety In Numbers:  Those of you who love the super moody, post-rock-leaning early days of We Were Promised Jetpacks may not immediately latch onto this track, as it’s packing a clean, mathy sound.  Different but good, I think.  Unraveling will be out at some point later this year on FatCat.  See the band at the Mohawk on November 11.

:The Rural Alberta Advantage – Terrified:  After a bit of a break, the Rural Alberta Advantage are ready to get back to it.  Judging by this song, they’re still somewhat tortured and too intense for their own good.  Hooray!  Get Mended With Gold on September 30 via Saddle Creek.  Catch the band at Red 7 on November 5.

:Ex Hex – Don’t Wanna Lose:  It took a bit longer than I expected, but Mary Timony has finally wrapped an album with her new act, Ex Hex.  I expect it to fill the gap in my soul that’s been present ever since the last group she was in, Wild Flag, decided to not continue forward.  Look out for Rips on October 7 via Merge.

:Death From Above 1979 – Trainwreck 1979:  The actual members of DFA 1979 may not be thrilled about reforming, but you wouldn’t know it by listening to this energetic number.  It’s good to have them back (even if they only sort of want to be around).  The Physical World is due out September 9.  See the band at Fun Fun Fun Fest in November.
