Close to the middle of Idle Times‘ self-titled record is “Do You Hear Those Bells,” a dingy, snarling track that stands out on a whole album full of them. Honestly, it’s kind of surprising that more bands in Seattle aren’t making records like this. It is bleak times there for most of the year! If we were still living there, we’d hole up in a garage and probably spit a bunch and make music exactly like Idle Times. Only problem is nothing we would do would sound as good. This is all controlled rage and focused bile (ew). The band’s record is out October 26th on Hozac.
