listen to Priests’ ‘Nothing Feels Natural’ LP
Priests‘ new album, Nothing Feels Natural, is out next week (1/27) on their own Sister Polygon label, but you can stream the whole thing right now. The band pull from a wide variety of punk and post punk influences, but really make it their own here. Guitarist G.L. Jaguar is an inventive player who rarely just strums, preferring skeletal parts that work in tandem with Taylor Mulitz’s basslines and Daniele Daniele’s propulsive drumming. Katie Alice Greer is still at the center of things, mixing shouty sloganeering with more subtle vocal performances like on poppy album closer “Suck” and Nothing Feels Natural‘s excellent title track. Listen, via NPR, below.
As mentioned, Priests organized and headline the “No Thanks: A Night of Anti-Fascist Sound Resistance in the Capital of the USA” concert that happens Inauguration Night at DC’s 9:30 Club with Ted Leo, Waxahatchee (solo), Sadie Dupuis and more. They’ll then kick off their tour with a Nothing Feels Natural release show at Brooklyn Night Bazaar on January 28 with tourmates Snail Mail (tickets).
