you ever to go to someone’s house and upon stepping foot in the joint you get the feeling that something just aint right? well, maybe you’re drunk at a party and you open a door thinkin its the toilet and just walk in on some people gettin it on, or that there is some secret being pass around and you aint in on it. that’s the feeling i get when listening to threads, a band straight outta south portland, maine.
threads remind me of the first time i listened to the massacre. they strike me more like a movement than a band. if that makes sense? i always felt that anton wanted the populus has his disciples, and threads rings that chord in me. are they striving for the same thing? i dont know? in my opinion, we need more musical movements. i wish the “indie” rock scene could follow in hip hop’s footsteps in the fact their are a lot of collaborations between artists, whether they be good or bad is not the point. they are atleast getting together, throwing ideas off each other and putting shit to tape, forging alliances and bringing people together.
whether or not threads is out for world domination, or just to make people think they are, they are an interesting listen. the one thing i really like is their seemingly “who gives a fuck attitude.” they sound as if every song could sound completely different every night, and i like that. oh yeah, if you like the mountain goats check these peeps out.
