New Music: Cyanide Thornton "Weight (Demo)"
I’m about 4 months late to this one, but then again I never really wanted this site to be about the latest hype music. A hefty guitar-heavy intro starts Weight off, setting the mood for a pretty special wintertime shed performance stopping and starting but never losing momentum. There’s something about this recording from Melbourne’s Cyanide Thornton that reminds me a little bit of Painful-era Yo La Tengo in its patience and confidence - exploring time as secondary, irrelevant in the pursuit of getting the most out of the strongest ideas in a song. Can’t wait to hear more.
