Junkyard J. vs. The Skin Army Girlz / High Fives, LA Hives | The Blood Brothers
There's a remarkable moment right in the middle of Young Machetes , the fifth album from screamo stalwarts the Blood Brothers. It's right at the start of "Spit Shine Your Black Clouds", when suddenly the '60s organ comes in, and it's riding a melody that doesn't sound like a ball of distortion flying through blown-out speakers, like on most of their songs. It's the most blatant pop song they have ever recorded, and if rock radio ever gave it a shot, it'd be a hit. Never has selling out sounded so eyeball-meltingly cool. When the Brothers released Crimes in , hardcore fans were outraged; they switched from indie-friendly ArtistDirect Records to mainstream niche label V2 Records, home of artists like Moby and the White Stripes. People were worried that America's favorite hard rock act was selling out.
