Carl Sagan’s Skate Shoes‘ bio boasts that the band is comprised of “three dudes getting loud down in Austin, Texas” and I would certainly have to say, that sentiment is not wrong. Noise rock with an incredible display of instrumental talent, we think they’re going to be giving the rock game a run for its money. The band’s album– aptly named Carl Sagan’s Skate Shoes–is coming out soon, and will be released on a limited run of 500 on black vinyl. We have the exclusive premiere of one of the tracks off of that record.
“Speak” starts out tame-ish, emphasis on the -ish. It’s hard hitting rock and roll at the beginning, and things take off suddenly at around 38 seconds, when the track goes into overdrive. Everything speeds up, almost double time as the lyrics start.
This track is one big massive wall of sound coming at you, unrelenting.
