3 Songs: On Repeat

For Today – “Fight The Silence” (Christian metalcore titans For Today returned this week with their fifth album, Fight The Silence, via Razor & Tie.  Never one to shy away from speaking the truth and blasting out positive vibes, vocalist Mattie Montgomery and crew make a strong statement against human sex trafficking with the explosive title track and first single, “Fight The Silence” in which proceeds from the sale of the song and the album will go to support the A21 Campaign.  Other standouts include “Pariah” with its unrelenting rhythm and message and the uplifting and inspiring “Fatherless”.  The band is currently on a headlining tour in support of the album before joining up with the Warped Tour this summer.)        

Water Liars – “I Want Blood” (With the success of last year’s highly-praised Wyoming, the prolific Water Valley, MS based duo released their self-titled third album – their third in as many years - this week via Big Legal Mess/Fat Possum.  As a result of touring, the dynamic new album features beefed up arrangements that expand upon their melancholic and soulful blues-soaked and country-leaning folk sound without losing focus on Justin Kinkel-Schuster's rich and haunting vocals for their best album yet.)

Buho – “Night Clinics” (Check out the caustic yet anthemic B-side to the South Texas punk rock trio’s self-titled debut 7” out now via Crowquill Records.  The trio which features members of Yoshimoto and Perpetual Heat blends together noise-addled post-punk with catchy 90’s alt-rock melodies that should entice fans of At The Drive In and Japandroids.)
