Wake Up to the Crushing Grind of YATSU “Matricide”

Every day it feels like America’s Idiocracy comes into sharper relief. The frantic scramble of media to get one more goofy celebrity sponsorship of a memefied politician and his rival preparing to beam his first state of the union from a prison cell. You really can’t make this shit up. Maybe a little Texas grindcore will help clear the mass brain fog? Hit play on our stream of YATSU‘s blindingly wrathful tune “Matricide” and reflect on the way we’re encouraged to direct our aggression away from those who are invested in the mass murder of our mothers. Instead we’re encouraged to use avatars to cosplay like revolutionaries. “Matricide” is a devastating song off their record It Can’t Happen Here out now via The Ghost Is Clear Records and Roman Numeral Records — get it here. If the circus of life is getting you down, let YATSU clear your mind and ground you in your present.

“It can’t happen here” speaks to the delusion of the United States as a whole being an impenetrable stronghold and could never decline. Drawing from the same source, the grating and violent, bulldozing sonics harness further weight from the all-encompassing themes that delve in current topics such as gun violence, false allyship, systemic racism, and political apathy to name but a few angles, together with the music providing a pervasive and firm backdrop to modern downfall.
