Album Review: Misery Signals — “Ultraviolet”

My brother and I started high school at the heyday of the metalcore scene.  We listened to quite a bit of awful, vapid breakdown-bots, but Misery Signals always stood out as a cut above the rest, right from the first time the guy sitting next to me in Spanish class put me on to them.  Lyrically, sonically, technically, emotionally, there was something about them that made them resonate deeper with us, and it’s something that we still come back to.  When I snagged Ultraviolet, I thought it would only be fitting that Vince and I tackle this one together.

Welcome to another Saturday morning playlist. This week I’m subjecting you to ska punk (blame Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater) and blessing you with new Misery Signals, Ian has you covered with the Mrs. Piss debut, and for once I’m not the one throwing The Mountain Goats in here. Check it out under the cut.

Evidently the internet at Vince’s house is blown. I’m assuming this is because he’s so damn fast and just shorted it out but the powers that be won’t budge to fix it in time so you got me instead. Hi. Anywho, Saturday means it’s time for good music and since we’re here we may as well make today a better day for all who come ’round to see what the 9C fam is blasting. We’ve got everything from a brand spanking new Vølus track as well as a new joint from The Goners, and some Ulcerate, King Dude, Darkthrone, COC, and, of course, some Waylon for good measure – seriously, Saturday ain’t Saturday without Waylon. But, you know there’s more, so head directly below to get your jam on. Cheers.
