I’ve never really appreciated concept albums, but if you stole a car – like, bare hands through the windshield and hotwired with your teeth, stole a car – won a drag race in said vehicle and then later overdosed in an attempt to get to sleep; this is definitely what it would sound like. I’m sure that’s what Toronto’s Greys were going for.
This sharp triplet starts with a pummeling one-two before stretching into the lull vs. bombast dueling of “Pill”. “Drag” is the strongest track, but the much more dynamic closer underscores a post-punk tendency more Fugazi and less Minor Threat. It’s a delightfully grueling nine minutes and your ears will probably never forgive you. Enjoy.
