So Stressed – Attracted To Open Mouths

So Stressed – Attracted To Open Mouths
Music Ruins Lives / Self released – 2013
Rock, Noise, Core, Punk, Sludge
Rated: ***

Self released in 2012 the So Stressed boys garnered the attention of the Music Ruins Lives guys which wanted to put the album Attracted To Open Mouths to record. The reason why isn’t immediately evident when the intro and the first track A Fisherman’s Feast have come and gone. For even though the manic and crazy atmosphere saves both songs; they aren’t the attention grabbers one hopes for when a noisecore group such as So Stressed comes around. Luckily any bad taste that might have been left from that first sip is quickly washed away with the third heavy and fast hitting track Little TV. It blasts and growls and levels the playing field. After which the rest of the album howls like a caged tiger. Growling and jumping and scratching at the bars. It’s high-energy anxiety and psychotic speedy meandering. And with the sludgy noise breakcore closer The Astronomical Horse it leaves the listener on a high note… And a bit stressed out…
