Bodies and Artifacts (interlude)—Freud's Body-Ego

Freud The Ego and the Id (orig. 1923) trans. Joan Riviere, ed. James Strachey I think we shall gain a great deal by following the suggestion of a writer who, from personal motives, vainly asserts that he has nothing to do with the rigours of pure science. I am speaking of Georg Groddeck, who is never tired of insisting that what we call our ego behaves essentially passively in life, and that, as he expresses it, we are 'lived' by unknown and uncontrollable forces. We have all had impressions of...

Britney Turns 20

Twenty years ago Britney Spears recorded “I’m Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman.” A goopy piano line and a karaoke-bar drum machine preset signal its seriousness. She and producer Max Martin wanted a ballad manifesto for Crossroads, a road-trip film about being Britney Spears but with Dan Aykroyd as the father resisting her maturation. For their idea of sensitive lyrics they tapped Dido Armstrong, whose “Thank You” turned into a massive hit in its own right after Eminem’s fan-ambivalent “Stan” interpo...

Boss – “Cash ‘Em In”

In recent years, Fucked Up drummer Jonah Falco, also of bands like Career Suicide and Game, has been living in England and producing some of the best records to come out of the great recent wave of UK punk and hardcore. Falco’s recent productions include recored from Chubby And The Gang and the Chisel, two overlapping bands that have been making some truly fired-up old-school street-punk. In retrospect, a 2018 single might’ve told us everything that was about to happen.

The Month In Metal – October 2021

In a tone far more diplomatic than I deserve, Burst is letting me know that I have, in fact, fucked up. “This is a very blasphemous question,” the guitarist for the speed metal band Blood Sport writes in an email. “The music is a vital part of the Argento style and I don’t think the songs are even that bad!”

Warum ich trotz meiner sozialen Ängste zu Partys eingeladen werden will

Ablehnung ist ein unvermeidlicher Teil des Erwachsenseins, ähnlich wie das rechtzeitige Bezahlen von Rechnungen und die jährliche Steuererklärung. Niemand mag es, sich ausgeschlossen zu fühlen – schließlich brauchen wir Menschen das Gefühl von Gemeinschaft und sozialer Zugehörigkeit. Wenn du aber eine Sozialphobie hast, wird das Gefühl, ignoriert zu werden, zu einer lähmenden Kombination aus Unsicherheit und Depression. Ausgeschlossen zu werden, fühlt sich beschissen an. Wenn du an ei...

The National Turns 20

The day Trouble Will Find Me came out felt like a feverish culmination. It was brutally, disgustingly hot and humid in New York, and the National were running all over town, playing a set of surprise shows that retraced their steps through origin stories: first at the tiny Ditmas Park bar Sycamore, blocks from Aaron Dessner’s house/studio; then the now-defunct Williamsburg venue Public Assembly, already rechristened from Galapagos, as it had been called when the National played it in the ’00s; a...

Stream Colombian Hardcore Band Unidad Ideológica’s Ferocious Self-Titled Debut

Unidad Ideológica are a hardcore band out of Bogotá with a maniacally noisy sound that verges on black metal at times. It’s so fast and visceral, though, that you might just think of it as punk. Whatever you want to call it, it rips. The band’s self-titled debut album, recorded during strict lockdowns earlier in this year, courses with an anger that comes through loud and clear even if you don’t understand Spanish. It sounds like destruction sweeping across the land, and at just 15 minutes total...

There’s something oddly comforting about seeing an album cover and knowing exactly what you’re about to get. Make Me Sick, the first album from the Pittsburgh punk band, is that kind of record. Band name? Album title? Circle-A in the band logo? Studded wristband? Middle finger? Dangling uvula? Black-ink artwork? Oh yeah. That’s truth in advertising right there.
