BALLS After Dark.139 Weaponry of choice

Shouts to Big Kev, mathematically half decent, the absolute state of dudes, Timmy Time, dragged by silence, hating your own voice, circus school, Bandcamp translations, the invention of metal, Yobsplaining Māori history, getting your double kicks, kapa haka groups, pop filters, unlearning colonialism, bending spacetime, overarching themes, all the drugs, we're a grunge band from Seattle (well it sure beats raising cattle), grime boosters, aspirational hoodies, The Purge but for sample clearance, fandom after the fact, two and a half chords, and a mercifully brief After After Dark 'Doc Further Yobsplains NZ History' monologue on eating people, the Treaty and colonial atrocities. Beeso claims he ran out of data and dropped out. A likely story. This week's new albums were Tell Me How You Really Feel by Very-Inner-Melbourne's Courtney Barnett, by teenage te reo metallurgists Alien Weaponry, and Alice in Chains' 1992 breakthrough Dirt. Next week: new long-players from Ms. Banks and the Presets, and the right time to crank the Hoodoo Gurus' Crank (1994). Current and recent review albums are on our After Dark album review playlist (most recent at the end) while our favourite tracks of the year are on our 2018 After Dark Mixtape. BALLS and After Dark also available here:
