Dust and dander in love

SC Beach

"Life in Hell" is a jumble-tumble of a song. It's a declamation that feels tossed-off, though it clearly isn't. Woolen Men's songs sound so casual and easy--the type you would hear at a basement punk show in your hometown--but their music is also clearly the result of repetition, work, practice, labor. This is the kind of energy that comes from a deep love of the art, the pursuit, the craft, etc.--less the consuming manic exuberance of youth. Woolen Men's Temporary Monument can sit alongside contemporary talky & nervous albums from Parquet Courts or (maybe) older albums by, say, fIREHOSE. It's all up-and-at-'em music & here's-the-score words.
