Stuff like this isn’t really my cup of tea anymore, but it’s hard to resist the near Manson-esque falsetto, chugging guitars, and foot-stomping beat. I actually remember when RIBS posted about their first EP on Reddit as well. That reddit thread is super interesting, just to hear singer slash head-honcho Keith Freund talk about how much time he spent agonizing over small details. A lot of work goes into recording music of any kind, but when you get into something as densely layered as this song, you have to be very careful with how you’re distributing your frequencies because it can all turn into mush very, very quickly. The fact that you can distinctly hear anything in this song is a testament to hard won production chops.
