Agoraphobic Nosebleed - 'Gnaw' from Arc (2016)
'Gnaw' completes AN's Arc & Kat Katz dredges and scrapes like when you really need all that ice off of your windshield and it doesn't want to come off. In fact, that is what all of 'Gnaw' sounds like. An icepick against an avalanche. Like Godflesh as a flow of dirty snow and ice repealing city streets and covering what remains underneath in dirt, gravel, inorganic filth. What happens when the streetcleaner fails against the elements and is buried under. Arc is my jam. I dig that Agoraphobic Nosebleed is doing the solo-KISS-EP stratagem and I cannot wait to see what else they have in store, but for me, this one will be hard to top, or even get out from under. All Hail.
