Got No Time For Some People

It was the end of last year that Chris posted up about his new Mutoid Man 'Helium Head' LPs. I had previously read that this thing was coming out but then completely forgotten about it. Well, despite the late start, I managed to grab a copy on red vinyl... although I have to admit that after seeing the cover, I almost decided against grabbing one altogether. I mean fuck... look at it:

This 'band' is composed of only two humans - Steve Brodsky from Cave In and Ben Koller from Converge. You may be aware that I'm a fan of Cave In, so I was really interested to hear this.

At first I was definitely disappointed. It has some of the familiar Cave In song traits, but it generally sounds a bit sloppy, but at least it seems in keeping with the spazzy cover.

Well I made sure to give this a few listens, and it wasn't long before this started to really sink its hooks into me. I think I've listened to it 2-3 times a day for the last couple of weeks. Having said that, I'm not sure I want to pick up any futher copies because... well, because of that cover. One should be more than enough for anyone.

Got this coming in a big order. I've purposely avoided hearing it because of that but I'm looking forward to giving it a spin
