Locks and the sound of not fucking around

Nothing makes me more happy than a good dose of bummer rock that comes out of the Windy City, which is why it's my pleasure to present to you this debut off Locks' forthcoming debut LP, Suicides Don't Commit Themselves.

For some reason I'm listening to this song and thinking “this is Xiu Xiu gone prog.” Then I look down the track listing and realize they cover a J Church song and I think to myself “I'm listening to genius.” Because if you sound like the missing link between King Crimson and Sister of Mercy you're alright in my book, but when you tackle a jam by the late, great Lance Hahn, you make me an instant fan.

Locks, “That Will Never Get Blood Out Of A Clown Suit”
