Weekly 40-Watt #11: Angel Du$t's 'Pretty Buff'

Before this last week, I’d listened to one Angel Du$t album once. It was last year and the album was (and I guess still is) called A.D., which is an album that contains 12 songs and is 15 minutes in length. It’s not quite a hardcore album, although I guess it’s a hardcore album maybe since this band is comprised of members of Trapped Under Ice and Turnstile, but either way it’s this pretty big-sounding, roaming punk album that was a lot of fun to listen to then I never returned to it because I probably forgot to click a button that would have added it to the thing. That album sounds like one of the giants in Game of Thrones decided to front a punk band and just stomped around the whole time.

For no good reason at all aside from that’s just the way life goes, I didn’t ever think about this band again until I started reading about how their new album Pretty Buff is a departure from their past sound. Stuff like this is interesting to me because why not check out a bunch of hardcore guys playing something that’s apparently more poppy? Artists expressing a different side of their interests can serve to hone their primary craft even more, so this type of artistic progression is often worthwhile and interesting and the album is called Pretty Buff which I found pretty intriguing too.
