The prospect of new Brand New material getting release sometime in the relatively near future has me knee-deep in their discography. We’re talking front-to-back Deja listens, in-depth attention to Daisy’s themes, outright speaker-blasting of The Devil and God, and wistful rewinds with Your Favorite Weapon.
What a catalog. What a band.They never get old, no matter how many times I listen. Any time I think I *might* be growing out of the music of my past, that I might not need to re-hear these songs, they come by and interrupt, reset me back to where I was. I remember how clearly I first heard those parts, I remember hearing angst in Jesse Lacey’s voice unlike any singer I’d ever heard and feeling so drawn to it, so in sync.
Hard to believe it was 10 years ago I first heard this particular song, strange to understand how much I’ve grown since then, and a little disconcerting to recognize how much can feel the same after so much time.
Brand New For Life.
