Batten down the hatches, prepare your anus, etc. Bailer of Cork, Ireland have decided 2016 will be their year. Hard hitting, nasty rock music of the sickest nature, their debut EP is streaming right here for the world to witness for the first time. What a treat! No April tomfoolery involved at all, "Shaped By The Landscape" kicks like a two stepping mule. Strap in.
Fueled by party friendly riffs and floor show breakdowns, each of these four tracks is a different, sweaty beast of their own. What's commonplace through Bailer's debut is neat guitar work and driving percussion for days; all blitzed together with groove dirty enough to be sinful and thick enough to chew on. "Shaped By Your Landscape" is bitter, ballsy and brutish. There's nothing left to the imagination and that's great. No frills, old fashioned fun from music is getting harder and harder to find. Norma Jean and Every Time I Die get it. So do Bailer.
Preorders live here. "Shaped By The Landscape" releases April 29th.
