Vilipend

Canadians Vilipend aren't making any new friends with their vitriolic new LP Inamorata and that's the way they like it. Apparently the band isn't so chummy with landlords either, after bassist Michael J. Crossley was denied an apartment due to his "nefarious" associations. Quoth Crossley's potential landlord:

"I will be straight up with you both. We were quite ready to make a decision in your favour the other night.

However, upon investigation of the band Vilipend, it has brought forward some concerns for us. We are uncomfortable with the energy that this music manifests.

We really enjoyed meeting with you both and you have shown both professionalism and patience in this process. We thank you for that. However, we feel it is not the best fit for our house and our other tenants."


Inamorata isn't exactly unicorns and rainbows. The new LP, due via A389 Records on 8/16, carries on in the tradition of noisey hardcore like Converge and Botch with elements of sludgy misanthropy throughout. Check out "Last Stand of the Hopeless Romantic" which rears its ugly head for the first time below, alongside another three tracks from the record.

Vilipend are on the East Coast with NYC's Meek is Murder this August, and will swing through Lit Lounge on 8/20 to play a show with Tiger Flowers. All streams and tour dates are below.

I'd throw their pizza delivery asses out on the bricks as well if they played that shit in my building. Won't be having any necromancing in my buildings. Get enough weird shit from the Haitians in Crown Heights, don't need any more spooky crap going on. You want to be like that, take it down to Canarsie or Coney Island or something.

2:19- Did you read the letter, idiot? The landlord didn't like his membership in the band and their music. It said nothing about the music being played in the building.

Hi 2:37. Welcome to Brooklyn Vegan and the internet, where people engage in a practice known as sarcasm. Thank you.

That landlord is a hero!!!

"We are uncomfortable with the energy that this music manifest"

I don't know how you're imagining that means that the "landlord didn't like his membership in the band". But then again, you inbred sausages never did take to that whole reading and comprehension bit amirite.

HAHAHA playing in Lowell MA

I don't know. That's not too far of a stretch actually (that the landlord wouldn't like someone being in a band - look at the gender outlaw's potential landlord problems!) It's funnier that this is 2:37's first trip to the internet. Go easy on him.

@3:00 - I'll bet anything that on 8/20 BV publishes a "tour van gets stolen" story. Hey Vilipend - here's a tip. Don't leave your shit out in Lowell.

The landlord did what any reasonable man would do.

2:43- Long time visitor and poster at BV. Welcome to the English Language, where there is a difference between sarcasm and idiocy, the latter which the original poster clearly demonstrated.

3:06 wrote what I was thinking. True story.

2:56- I guess you skipped the part of the post which mentioned "nefarious associations (i.e. band)"? Not too good at skimming posts, amirite?

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2012 3:13 PM

3:06- probably really good advice.

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2012 3:15 PM

Does anyone give a fucking fuck? No. Most interesting thing about the band is that one of them didn't get an apartment? Boo hoo.

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2012 3:16 PM

Lowell is only the third worst city crime wise on that tour.

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2012 3:21 PM

3:16 no, the most interesting thing about the band are the jorts.

3:28 #2- Wow, you have shocked us all with how extreme you are.

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2012 3:36 PM

^ 3:11 (1) that is

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2012 3:36 PM

3:11(a) is clearly a butthurt 2:37. As a long time reader and frequent commenter here I have seen this same behavior too much for this to be an exception.

^It would have been funnier if you used the OG Judy G version. Nice try. You're not ready for prime time yet. Don't get discouraged though, keep at it.

3:49- seriously, stop. I'm literally shaking in fear at your prophecy doom.

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2012 9:37 PM

LULZ that 8:15 knew that there was an "OG Judy Garland" version. Big "show tunes fan" there, amirite. You've had your fun, now back to the glory hole - those dicks ain't gonna suck themselves :-P

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2012 11:20 PM

Interesting. So 8:15, are you a friend of Dorothy's?

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2012 11:40 PM

You're right 11:20, they won't. I'm going back to work with Judy as my soundtrack.
What number are you going to be tonight? I want to give you extra special treatment. You're one of my frequent fliers! I LOVE YOU!

Can't wait for the show at Lit! It's been a while since I've seen/played with Meek!

The cuffed jort is a terrible look.
