Indie Rock power trios are as common as
crime, but the ones that rise to the top of the form defy the
limitations of their numbers by sounding more expansive than the
standard guitar/bass/drums set-up.
Although hints of growled dirty vocals
sometimes form an undercurrent to the proceedings and even push to the
forefront, The Contortionist seems detached from the Deathcore/Death
Metal proponents with which it is often grouped.
If any old fogey tries to tell you there is no soul
left in modern music, sit him (or her) down in his favorite reclining
chair and tell him to shut up and listen while you give him a juicy
taste of The Main Squeeze.
