La Dispute – Rooms of the House
It’s kind of a ridiculous how consistent some bands can be in terms of releasing absolutely brilliant material. La Dispute is one of those bands, and be it a full release of their practically non-classifiable brand of post-hardcore-emo-spoken-word-progressive-amazeballs or an EP of ambient-ish instrumentation over spoken word experimentation, they have done no wrong in my book, and Rooms of the House in no way breaks this streak of brilliance the band has been on since their debut EP. This album is definitely stylistically closer to Wildlife than it is to Somewhere at the Bottom, but Rooms of the House really shines through in terms of its variation, and how well the album flows despite the frequent and extreme shifts in dynamic. Did I mention it’s fucking brilliant? Stop reading this stupid review and go listen to it, you absolute fucks.
