Brand New - Daisy

Jesse Lacey and company have released their first new album in three years since their last disc which was amazing The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me. The shortly titled Daisy is a departure for the band as every record has been, but their style and tone is still there, just more aggressive. Lacey split song writing duties with Vin Accardi this time around more than the last and you can hear a difference. The two song writers think alike but approach in vastly different ways, Accardi's songs come right for the throat, while Lacey's are the cat playing with the wounded mouse, toying with the kill. Daisy is complex and scattered but overall I am really enjoying it, Bought a Bride and the title track are easily my favorites. The album took a couple listens to really get it and begin to really take it in and dig it, I must say the drumming is amazing on many of the tracks, not over the top but the way he executes little fills on the toms or off time kicks, subtle shit I love. Anyways check it out, if you hate it let me know, if you like it great.
