On New Obits Track “Back and Forth”


Love these two-couplet verses: “You say nobody knows anybody else/That’s not true, ’cause I know you /You say this atmosphere is poisoning your health/That’s not my concern anymore–no!” This titanic, minor-key anomaly closes Obits new I Blame You, out next week. Not on mp3 yet, but check the above video, which really quite suits the song: black-and-white, slowly rotating prom lights, big reverby sound echoing around the room, Froberg’s voice hinting at something raw and worn out. This band’s slow songs are even more caustically bitter than their fast ones.
