I urge my fellow Phoenicians to head over to Rhythm Room tonight to check out Aqueduct, whose latest LP, Or Give Me Death (Barsuk), I have been wearing out for the past two weeks. Unfortunately, I work and will miss the show. Boo.
Or Give Me Death should be the constant companion of anyone in the post-breakup confusion of anger and regret, resentment and resolve. Just sayin’, I’d hate to be the girl on the other end of missives like Keep it Together: “You’ve been flying blind / people never change / bitch, don’t even try.”
You can also stream Or Give Me Death in its entirety at Barsuk.
