Star Fucking Hipsters - Until We're Dead

So, apparently this came out back in September, but I only just found out. Lame.

Anyways, this is Star Fucking Hipsters. If you don't know, they're a band with Stz and Arj from Leftover Crack, and some people from World/Inferno and this other band. As you probably know, I'm a huge fan of Leftover Crack, and no, I don't want to hear any shit on how un-punk or how sold out they are. Die. But SFH, awesome. Saw them in Tomkins earlier this year, was fun. This here is their first, and so far only album, and I fucking love it. It sounds almost nothing like Leftover Crack or Choking Victim, trading in the crust influence for a more poppy sound. THIS IS NOT A BAD THING. All it does it makes the songs hyper catchy and melodic as hell. Quite enjoyable. Surprisingly very few "angry" songs, with a larger focus on melancholy and shit. And I love me some melancholy. The three songs with this, Broken, Empty Lies, and Only Sleep, are actually so fucking good, this may be my personal album of the year (if it can dethrone There Is Nothing Eternal Exists).

Seriously, this is a great album.
