The Bravery - Slow Poison [single] (2009)

I've never been the hugest fan of The Bravery, but they've got a new album coming out next month called Slow Poison. Who cares, right? Well, I was reeling after I heard the title track and now I actually want to give it a listen. I don't know what it is about NY-based indie bands, but they really know how to take 80s downer revival, throw in some post-punk, and shell out something danceable as all hell. I don't know if I want to cry myself to sleep, go out and get trashed, dance around in my undies in my room at night, or blast this song in my car on one of my aimless night drives around Pensive Town. Maybe all four? "Slow Poison" kinda/sorta makes me want to spin around the room in a depressive, almost frenzied dance until the fog clears. It's okay if you have no idea what the hell I'm talking about, 'cuz I sure as hell don't.

Ha! I just noticed the album art. Cute, but I feel bad for the little birdie.

Uh, check out this video for "Hatefuck", another song off the new album. It's a bit disturbing.

Wow, and here I thought I was in a depressive funk. Sam Endicott clearly takes the cake on who's a bigger nut-job. Thanks for the most unsettling clip of the week, maybe I should stick to the rainbows and sunshine of Passion Pit for now :)

Slow Poison is better than that track, btw. You?
