Pleasure Leftists - Elephant Men
The latest release from Katorga Works is this cool 7” single from Cleveland post-punkers Pleasure Leftists. Elephant Men gets real real fucking good around the 1.55 mark, although you won’t have any idea when that is timewise because of the Tumblr player. BUT YOU WILL KNOW IT, because that guitar starts to get fucking wild and goes off on it’s own little trip. The B side Not Over is equally as enjoyable.
“In a 2013 music universe over-saturated with post-punk zombies, Cleveland’s Pleasure Leftists have forged a sound all their own. Their 2011 debut EP on Fan Death established the band as a contender in the world of gloomy thumping, but they are set apart by an aggressive rhythm section and haunting incantations that can only be characterized as an ecstatic celebration of the human voice. This 7” features two new songs that push the limits of a doomsday worldview’s pop sensitivity.”
