A new Beardfish album dropped today, so I’ve been giving it a few listens. I feel like their guitar work has become even more aggressive, and they’ve both scaled back their vocals and learned to sing a bit better. That’s the direction in which I’ve been wanting them to go for years, so this is probably going to end up being one of my favourites from them.
It’s always hard to decide what to post off a Beardfish record, because I want to show off that hardened guitar edge, but I also want to trumpet their weird carnival prog sound which made me fall in love with them in the first place; however, the two don’t overlap all that often. This song, Seventeen Again, is mostly their carnival act but towards the end fuzzes up.
