GSL 87

Released on April 13, 2004

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

San Francisco trio The Vanishing return to GSL with a follow-up to last year's Songs for Psychotic Children full-length. Fronted by former Subtonix sax player Jesse Eva, the band have amassed a growing cult of loyal fans, gripped by the band's sultry goth-dance rhythms and Eva's manic, unpredictable live presence. The San Francisco Bay Guardian, in describing the band's "exhilarating, synth-driven sound and visual stage show", insist that The Vanishing "can't be written off as just goths", and that much is undeniable. Traces of Glass Candy, Adult, Sisters of Mercy and The Birthday Party hint at the band's versatility, and the brisk sales of Songs... suggests that they are indeed striking a chord amongst the disaffected pale-faced youth of America. A recent European tour and three-week residency in Berlin's avant-garde hotbed, Kreutzberg, may indeed be making them household names on other shores. The Vanishing's two new songs are back-to-back with the GSL debut of Berkeley's Sixteens, also a trio with an affinity for the darker side of life. Comparable to a synth-happy Christian Death by way of Suicide, Sixteens have been playing around the Bay Area for the past few years, self-releasing a full-length album in the process. Sixteens contribute two songs.

This whole album is pretty dark and errie. Its pitch black electro/aggro rock. So if you dont like that sort of thing i dont think you would enjoy this at all. I typically enjoy this kind of music but this is really fucking dark. Just not in that kind of mood now i guess.
