All I ever hear from people is "why aren't there more bands fusing abrasive noise rock, post-punk and shoegaze?" And by people, I of course mean no one.
Even so, I was in search of something to make my teeth hurt a little bit, and in doing so I remembered Breathing Patterns' own particular brand of pain. If you lament the demise of These Arms are Snakes (and you should) and Unwound but still want moments of calm and beauty, head over to Bandcamp and run through Breathing Patterns' new record.
'All Beat Up' is also the name of the album and it's the soundtrack to Monday tension headaches the world over. Revel in it.
