Album 365: Day 34 - Quicksand - Manic Compression

Manic Compression

Favorite tracks: Delusional, Thorn In My Side, Brown Gargantuan
Sleeper tracks: Simpleton, It Would Be Cooler If You Did

This is another band I heard about via a friend on Facebook.  I have never listened to them before tonight.

Quicksand is a (looking at my notes) post-hardcore band.  I'm not too familiar with bands in that genre.  The album is actually pretty good and delivered more than I was expecting.  The mix is dated but it doesn't take away from the cool guitar, drum and bass grooves.  You can hear everything well although the vocals are a little buried.  I think my favorite song I heard tonight was either Thorn In My Side or Gargantuan.  I came away from this one wanting to hear it again.
