Spray Paint is one of the best bands in Texas right now. They are a three piece post-punk band that is far from the boring ass descriptor the genre has grown to become. Look in the mirror and see the bags under your eyes bruise and sag. That’s the sort of anxiety they pull.
The Rebel is a controversial and confusing piece. I don’t know if he’s a genius or has lost himself. I think both are appropriate and are things to embrace in today’s society. Sacred Bones picked him up for a record, and then, I don’t know, probably dropped him, which is not surprising.
I hope everyone in South Texas can check out this show.

Of course I’m listening to the Smiths while it’s raining outside. Have all the fun with that.
A great story was published in The Monitor about Matthew Sustaita’s excellent project, Diosdelghetto, within the context of his supporting dj set for Shabazz Palaces this Wednesday. It’s a great story, and also shares some insight on how I came across Matt’s music - tumbling at 3 am on a weeknight and sober. haha. Click the pic for the story.
