Failure : ‘Hot Traveler’

This song right here is how you open an album.  Failure last released a record back in 1996, and then they returned this year with new music which made me realize how much I’ve missed them. As someone on youtube commented, Failure is ”your favorite band’s favorite band”.

There’s something about Ken Andrews’ voice that almost sounds like he’s singing through a tin can. It’s almost hollow and pairs so well with the band’s Alternative Rock sound.  I’m really digging the music video too – seeing the crew in the background shooting the actual music video, and of course that gorgeous drumming breakdown at the 3:30 mark.
