Take Away These Early Grave Blues - Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra

from the album Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light On Everything (2014)

Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra are an experimental rock band from Montreal, Canada with a firm foundation in hardcore bands, with Black Flag, Minutemen, and Minor Threat as influences.

Guitarist Efrim Menuck also cites the influence of Deerhoof, stating "there's a way to unreal a melody so its the oddest sounding thing in the world that we're always excited whenever we can even hint at it."

Take Away These Early Grave Blues is a song that achieves melodic hooks and threads woven in a discordant grunted out drone.  Listen to it several times and you realize it is a different type of pop tune.  Really.

In particular, I dig the drum beat and vocals most.  The beat is the centerpiece of this song with its pounding toms matching the vocals in repeating "Take away these, take away these" that creates the foundation for all the other cacophony.

Give this tune a shot.
