Release Date: January 24, 2012
What began as one slow, sad, slog of an album ended as one of the year’s best. Attack on Memory is as raw a rock album as you’ll find of recent vintage. Engineered by legendary producer Steve Albini (Nirvana, Pixies), the album is distinctively stripped down with lead singer Dylan Baldi’s vocals front and center. Outside of the opening track, the distinctively dark and moody “No Future/No Past,” the rest is pretty upbeat, offering up hints of punk, and late-eighties rock. It’s fun, it’s dark, angry and even a little trippy; but most of all it’s short, clocking in at just a hair over 30 minutes.
