Though it lacks the sickle-in-the-forehead force of the band's live shows, Mind is nonetheless a bracing experience. Wolf Eyes is like a sonic gateway into a beastly, Mad-Max-ian post-apocalyptic world. On "Stabbed in the Face," lumbering, serrated sounds merge with what seems like the squawks of mutant birds, as vocalist John Olson's massively damaged vocals surge then seep into a feral malaise. The wing flaps of bats mark "Village Oblivia," and the title track follows a chilling bass drum deeper and deeper into a cave of digital residue. The song ends knee-deep in madness.

Beck and Alabama Shakes...that's about it. I'm sure there's an unknown or two I would…
Well, this years Music Midtown sucks!
I'm pretty sure he was 19.
3 people apparently love handing over an extra 40% in fees for nothing in return…
Dang. I thought they would name some actual headliners.
