Alley Lives in Washington

A great read by Puff Pieces drummer, DC historian, and amazing neighbor Amanda Huron.

puffpieces:

It’s funny how history gets framed, and forgotten, especially in a place changing as fast as Washington, D.C. Alleys in D.C., a Washington Post reporter told us a couple weeks ago, were “once dreaded.” Now they’re becoming “fun, even chic.” Back in the bad old days – which the reporter glosses…

Priests - Bodies and Control and Money and Power (Don Giovanni)
“If every punk band from here on out is at least somewhat influenced by Bodies and Control and Money and Power the world will be a much better place.  Here is ferocity within catchiness and intelligence, a sound that’s fresh even when it plays to old punk-rock tricks.  If you’re at all interested check back with me at the end of the year to see if this is my favorite record of 2014.  It’s rare that I give this honor to such a short release but as of right now there’s really no contest.”

Watch the fiery D.C. punk band Priests play “Doctor” for WAMU’s Bandwidth and read the Washington City Paper cover story (yes, written by your beloved Tumblr host). 

One thing I love about totalvibration's Priests profile in the Washington City Paper: Lots of contextual clues about where we come from geographically and musically. I love Lars' music writing because he's aware of a lot of history and understands how bands like Nuclear Crayons and Turboslut and many others are so significant to the sonic landscape around here.
