Hung Like a Horse by ALL LEATHER
The nature of the “Super Group” is a tricky one. When everyone involved in a project is at the pinacle of their musical careers, they can only go one of two ways: crash and burn or generate a musical orgasm that explodes all over your unsuspecting face.
All Leather is so fucking good that they their music actually makes you feel like a worthless piece of shit–and you are.
A rave-punk band like this exists only to pacify a growing hipster alliance that just wants something loud and pervasive to listen to on over-sized headphones while they quietly masturbate to American Apparel ads on the back of VICE Magazine.
At the risk of sounding like the most unrepentant douchebag on Earth…if you don’t like this band, then you just don’t get it. Coming from bands like Some Girls, Ground Unicorn Horn, Holy Molar, Swing Kids, Crimson Curse, Struggle, Head Wound City, and The Locust(!) (and that’s just Justin Pearson), the members of this band have paid their dues and proved that if you can’t take them, you can’t hang with the cool indie kids.
I hold out hope that this outing isn’t some kind of “experiment,” and these guys continue to take the effort seriously…but not too seriously.
