<—- Week 4: Clark – “Mirage Trooper”
Week 6: Thelonious Martin feat. Joey Purp – “Bomaye” —->
Hey everyone. RobBarracuda here, and it’s time to talk about the newest release from the 2016 Adult Swim Singles Program.
This week’s free single is “Short Life” from Brooklyn-based metal band Sannhet. The group’s sound combines elements of shoegaze and black metal, being primarily instrumental and favoring shorter song lengths than their contemporaries, usually about 3-4 minutes in comparison to the lengthier 9-minute musical odysseys of similar acts. While the black metal genre has never really been my thing, I find this song to be solid enough, with the most enjoyable segment being the first half of the song. This is chiefly because of the clarity of the production with the bass guitar and drums coming in very clearly compared to the muddy production usually found in this type of music, although this does dissipate as the second half of the song becomes more typical black metal fare. The song is still decent overall, and if you’re particularly fond of the Deafheaven/Ghost Bath style of post-black metal and have never listened to Sannhet before now, you are going to love “Short Life”. I look forward to whatever comes out next week. You can stream the song below, and you can download it for free right here.
