It's been a while since I've been so hyped for a new musical genre. The genre in question is "… described as playing jazz, blues and spoken word influenced, post-hardcore which incorporates elements which range through screamo, progressive rock, post-rock and hardcore punk.".
Where metal music usually quiets down and swells up to an intense and loud cresendo, La Dispute pulls the rug from out under your expectations and can have deafening silence. Intense buildups to a single horn or a soft whisper of lyrics. And damn it is intense.
I really like the songwriting and combo with the semi hardcore-spoken word vocals. It is a sound unique to this band as far as I know.
