RIYL: METZ, The Jesus Lizard, Harkonen, Big Business, The Melvins, Hammerhead, Cows, Unsane, and Harvey Milk

Aggressive music has seen trends come and go while continuing to transform and evolve, now to the point where music that was once too abrasive for the mainstream can now break into the Billboard 200. Are the tastes of the mainstream evolving, or are musicians compromising themselves in the interest of making money? It’s likely some combination of the two, but for Minneapolis trio Buildings, neither of these matter in the least.

Buildings blur the lines that divide many rock sub-genres – punk, noise rock, post hardcore all come to mind – and end up with a sound that is dynamic, raw and absolutely massive. Nothing is held back in terms of energy and aggression, but its executed in a way that is entirely organic and not at all calculated. Not a note of their stellar 2011 LP MELT CRY SLEEP sounds like a studio creation. Quite the opposite, actually; its simply an album that effectively demonstrates the skilled musicianship of three individuals. Last year’s It Doesn’t Matter EP was a fine successor and further showcased the band’s development. Less is more is sometimes the best course of action to take, and with Buildings, it seems there is no need to alter the formula that has proven successful for them for the better part of the last decade.

With the recent addition of bassist Mike Baille, the band is continuing mature and, from the looks of it, it seems as though the best has yet to come. Triple Eye Industries welcomes Buildings to the family as we prepare for the release of their upcoming split 10″ with Volunteer.
