Last night we went to a Fuck Buttons show and, though we were mostly sober, there was one moment where this white light was shining in our eyes, the chords were so glimmering and intense, and everything was so heightened we felt like someone had dosed us. Certain music just sounds like church! The twerky funky chords in Jinder's excellent electro-disco "Youth Blood" were already like that (sidebar, why do so many Swedes have so much soul?), but one of our fave Brit dudes Bok Bok elevated 'em with an extra kick in the junk, extending out the warm chords for a bit then letting congos and toms fall apart like candy coming from a pinata. We can dig this and will be digging further on the 21st of November, when Bok Bok plays NYC's Santos with Joker and L-Vis 1990 (it's on our calendar in red sharpie with a bunch of stars and exclamation points, so see you there).
