"King of Kings" - The Evens
Amy Farina and Ian MacKaye - The Evens - will be releasing their first album in six years. ‘Tis reason enough for excitement, yes? The Odds will be released by Dischord Records November 20th. “King of Kings” is a rather enticing taste of the album - stripped down, but affecting as a result. The last thirty seconds are especially fine; the pause may be an easy tactic, but that doesn’t make the sudden reentry of the soft guitar thrum any less satisfying. It’s also a nice palate-cleanser after being in a room filled with bad metal.
