warren barton This is so DAMN good I had to buy it! One crazy ride through the world of this stunning band, it takes you on some kind of drug riddled mysterious journey and you end up with NETHERLANDS. Unbelievably clever ice cool lyrics to boot. Favorite track: FAKIR MINTAS.

thedoggboy If a Mad Scientist went back to the 80's and forcibly mated a hair metal band with a no-wave band, the nefarious result would be this record. AND IT'S SO DELICIOUS! Favorite track: A NEW HOPE.

I’ve had enough of myself I’ve had enough of my stuff I’m disillusioned with the “personal” shtick 
I’ve had enough of the web I’m getting off of this thread  and please god edit your new baby pics (fuck off!!)  
I’ve had enough of the apps not interested in the stats don’t wanna start a fucking business here, slick. 
let’s give away all our shit and go elope in the woods and in the end get fucking crippled by ticks! 
comfortably bewildered at your cognitive nerve end maintain your willful ignorance, winking indifference march out the half-baked militants, frothing sectarian suck up to faceless hegemon, trickle down avarice 
in thrall to phantom dad circle back with the Chads then hunker down with the haves 
keep calm, and live in the blank  mute en route to the bank fun and games till there’s a boot on your neck. 
desperate to get laid desperate to get likes disembodied in a virtual maze   (but) it pairs well with the fish + it looks good with your bag *but still may take up to 14 business days. 
comfortably bewildered at your cognitive nerve end maintain your willful ignorance, winking indifference march out the half-baked militants, frothing sectarian suck up to faceless hegemon, trickle down avarice dine out with chirpy nihilists = mandatory happiness another bohemian parasite/ “complicated artist” 
not again! get out of my mind! meat is murder you don't own ME. 
comfortably bewildered at your cognitive nerve end
 suck up to faceless hegemon, trickle down avarice

FAKIR MINTAS 02:30
get born at the end of world gun to temple is “humane” amoral, with a heart of gold don’t forget that you’re an animal dead ends justify the memes it didn’t happen, if you didn’t see it. is it a boy is it a girl is it a thing is it a cat is it a car is it Brazil is it all sleight of hand ? you’re death eating, yet you look away you’ve got an alibi for everything they overcooked it, so you sent it back I like your parents more than you, I think. beneath the smile, I’m rather desperate the list gets longer, everything I hate closer to ogre than I’d like to be yet I still rock the bells, and take the cake! monkey eat it, monkey eye it, monkey buy it. pet the wookie, get a cookie. ‘fess up or they’ll come and take you away. ..not a doctor, not my problem! eyes up, outside! put your phone away! hands in plain sight! put your dick away! you’re death eating, yet you look away you’ve got an alibi for everything they overcooked it, so you sent it back I like your parents more than you, I think. beneath the smile, I’m rather desperate I left the diamonds in my other cape closer to ogre than I’d like to be.

A NEW HOPE 03:01
first they’re gonna eat ya up  then they’re gonna shit ya out  then they’re gonna run amok  then they’re gonna scream and shout 
 (so let’s) rock it like a call to arms  wear it like a hell toupée sing it like a car alarm  sell it like a latter day!  maybe so, but maybe not.  ya only own it mid disaster, cuz ya hafta, pre catastrophe!  take a lap around the yard spend the summer on the couch marathon the Amazon  cozy underneath the rug  everything is going to hell! + everything is going to plan cuz everybody’s got a price, when everybody feeds the man. (so let’s) monkeywrench a barbecue complicate a Super Bowl everybody home, from school + let the women run the show!  maybe so, but maybe not.  ya only own it mid disaster, when ya hafta, pre catastrophe!  let it go, or make it stop.  ya only own it when it’s close enough to home to foil your apathy!  que sera, sera, sera.  suffocation cuz the air is more important than philosophy,  close enough to home to foil your apathy!  hot enough to burn ya, got the third degree,  disaster, when ya hafta, pre catastrophe!  rock it like a call to arms, we’re never gonna go away!  sing it like a car alarm!  yeah!

DEATHLESS 05:29
sleep breathe into the abyss rise awake at the foot of my lord, all is bliss first lust, then discontent. thirst, desire, sloth and cowardice. doubt, stupor, fame or infamy. I choose death in battle, before defeat. dance alive at the foot of my lord, all is bliss ride we learn to climb the sky, deathless. let go of material dream time to put away the childish things know, things are never what they seem. rise alive at the foot of my lord, all is bliss fight! we’ll live to fight the tide, pour out a lesson into my dreams  B G D A E .

REWILD! 03:56
don’t know what to do or where to start forget philosophy + meet your beating heart in time you’ll learn to pick the morning, over night and if you’re lucky, you’ll learn to laugh stay young get old and die. rewild, child. ok, you’re skeptical and bitter in your mind it’s nothing short of a miracle to even be alive it’s high time that you walked the path, and joined the fight it’s way past 11th hour and it’s do or die! so be a light unto yourself, cuz there aint’ no god above! be) a deserter in the war on life, + be a medic in the war on love! rewild, child! EARTH! FIRST!

about

NETHERLANDS Brooklyn, New York

formed by Timo Ellis in 2010, NETHERLANDS magic lies in the contrasts it sets up: falsetto vocals, odd time signatures, and haunting hooks transform their monstrous power into weirdly delicious and dynamic songs. The overall effect is not unlike that of Swans and Dio playing simultaneously, atop an actual mountain of MDMA. ... more
