"The song starts out quiet and eerie and kind of just lingers there for a while, but then (spoiler alert), it goes from 0 to 100 — or more like 0 to 1000 — real quick. Blasts of harsh noise come bulldozing in, and world-weary, pissed-off vocals enter, turning “Obsolete” into an almost post-punk/industrial song that’s more accessible than you might have guessed from the intro."
Listen to Geronimo's newest track, Obsolete, via BrooklynVegan, here.
Geronimo (comprised of Nelson, Ruiz, and Francoso) remains generally vague in terms of its conception, intentions, and processes, instead allowing its sonic blasts to shriek for themselves. Still, Nelson explains that, “The misanthropic sound itself is designed to question the shameful / shit-assed gilded-age state of affairs: idea being if you bang your head against the wall long enough, you start to see things.” Comprised of members from bands such as Man Is The Bastard/Bastard Noise, Sleestak, Noise Instrument, Unicorn and Slowrider, these lifelong musicians and experimentalists continue to treat their music as an exercise in carefully crafting, without compromise, raw minimalist power that will turn this deeply flawed society on its head in order to expose its rotten underbelly.
Obsolete will be released digitally as well as on "blood" colored vinyl through Three One G Records on May 31st. Preorder, here.
