Chicago Sleaze rockers Something Is Waiting release their second full length LP "Songs For the Sally Beauty Pavilion". Massive, pounding backbeats propel sinister, bluesy riffage, while one of the baldest voices in all of music snarls like Axl at his most pissed, spitting out lyrics that dismantle his various targets, viciously yet poetically. Music scene foibles and other cultural trash fires are the focus of many songs - soulless retro fashions, delusional cover bands, and more. Gobbo is a wordsmith but, make no mistake, he is singing literally and directly about the issues on his mind. When he sings about "Nikki Lane's Neo Nashville Airbnb," he is singing about the time he stayed at Nikki Lane's Airbnb in Nashville.
"Maybe it's the way they mix chuggy hard rock, shrieking crust, and greasy glam metal to create a sound that's reminiscent of everyone from Today Is The Day and Dillinger Escape Plan to Ministry and Dope. Maybe it's how they perform hostile, chugging crushers with titles like "Fuck In Peace" and "Hippies Became Lawyers". But though their sound is harsh and mind-boggling, the Chicago quintet have none the less managed to capture our hearts and minds with their patented form of driving pissy weirdo metal." - Kerrang! Limited to 500 copies. RIYL - Sleaze Rock/Faster Pussy Cat/Nashville Pussy
