Tonight: Military Special @ The Uptown Theatre
Download: Military Special - "Warrant Error"
Like a middle point between Bloc Party's angular post-punk revivalism and The Cure's gothic pathos, Military Special create a rambunctiously shout-along brand of rock music with that, nonetheless, leaves room for detours into spacey indie-pop. There's just the right amount of desperation in the vocals and lyrics to keep listeners hooked, but unlike most of their contemporaries, Military Special don't navelgaze for its own sake. Instead, there's always plenty of energy to go around.
Military Special play before the midnight showing of A Nightmare on Elm Street. Peep the trailer below:
