Vision Swim

The new Growing album is out I guess? That kinda snuck up on me, I thought it was gonna be more of a post-420 thing, timewise. Good thing you can't throw a rock at this school without hitting a kid more on top of these things than I. This month is proving itself a slipperier eel everyday. I think I'm just gonna have to let it go and stop being so surprised every time I look at the calendar.

ANYWAY, my initial reaction to this album is pretty much the same as my reaction to their live show a few weeks back: Some really amazing shit on par with their best stuff and some cheesy ass noodling the likes of which I never thought I'd hear from Growing. Thankfully the album is heavier on the former but not nearly devoid of the latter. The real kicker though is that even the really good tracks are mad similar to Color Wheel AKA their last album. I guess Growing is nothing if a not a slow moving couple of dudes but some more growth (no pun intended) between releases would be appreciated. The shit still knocks though and will definitely be on repeat for a minute.

Here is a good one for the shorties.

On a side note, every time I find myself on the Troubleman Unlimited site I'm like "man, this is damn near the best label going right now." Then I'm like "I dunno, that's kinda sayin a lot..." Then I'm like "oh fuck, what am I thinking here, I always forget where they're from." Then I'm like "It's Bayonne, they're from Bayonne."
