Not 100% sure what Brittany Terry is singing in the chorus, her classic dream-pop voice buried a bit under beds of fuzzy tremolo. Top contenders are The future is real and The future is weird, oddly different variations on a world that simply won't stop happening. Both propositions feel sad, the whole of "Destructive Paths to Live Happily" delivered in a downtrodden late-’80s-alternative way, starting before Terry even speaks with the song's first echoing guitar stabs. New Orleans' Kindest Lines carry that tone, the massive bummer of postindustrial detachment, perfectly across their debut album Covered in Dust, out June 15 on Wierd Records. The "Destructive Paths" single is available now.
