It Got Very Heavy

Saw these guys last night.  On record, as you can hear from the clip I'm attaching, they sound pretty "dirty New Order tinged with some My Bloody Valentine sneaker-study."  Truth of truths, not totally my thing, but the lady-more-than-a-friend loves that sorta stuff, so I took her to the show.  And wow!  Just an incredibly heavy, high-energy show that transformed the album's safe grooves into menacing snarls that very well might eat you but fuck it, what a way to go!  To wit: Eyeballs were melted (and the bassist left the stage bleeding profusely from a poorly choreographed instrument exchange head wound -- a la Iggy Pop/Krist Novoselic).
