Band Of The Day – Freshkills

freshkills_table_email.jpg

Freshkills are a Brooklyn based band who much like my earlier Band Of The Day this week, are hard to get a handle on. Definite post-punk influences like Drive Like Jehu and The Jesus Lizard are matched with a vocalist that Nick Cave or Ian Curtis would be proud of. The music is driving and the vocals are certainly distinct. Freshkills have hit on a familiar, yet unique combination with their sound. “I Know I Know” is off the band’s second full-length, which remains untitled and unreleased. The album was recorded with Alex Newport (At The Drive-In, The Locust, Two Gallants). Thoughts?
