It’s 2017 and well over a year since my last post, but I guess it’s never to late to startup the old blog again! So without any explanation for the long break, today’s Song of the Day goes to a band that I haven’t necessary followed as much as most. The first track off of Dance Gavin Dance’s recent release, Mothership, “Chucky vs. The Giant Tortoise” begins with an epic back-in-forth between vocalists Jon Mess and Tilian Pearson that rivals classic tracks from the Rise Records veteran group. DGD have been around for a while and definitely have a signature sound at this point. They always have had strong clean vocalists and Jon Mess’s ridiculous lyric writing in unmatched.”Chucky vs. The Giant Tortoise” is no exception. Tilian’s high pitched vocals have definitely grown on me and for this album he has added some grit, reminiscent to the old Johnny Craig DGD style. And I can’t not mention that the lyrics to this song are simple out of this world. Hope you enjoy this wonderful introduction to DGD’s tenth album as much as I do! lml /\^/\ lml
