Top Ten of Twenty Thirteen: Nathan Gray of BoySetsFire

Nathan Gray

Nathan Gray

BoySetsFire’s first studio album in almost seven years, While A Nation Sleeps, was released via Bridge Nine in July 2013…just in time for people to start talking about ’90s hardcore and emo again.  But this is no reunion, cash grab.  A band for nearly two decades, BSF has played hundreds of shows to anyone that would watch, from basements to festival audiences. They’ve lived through the terror of rap-rock, the tyranny of nu-metal, and the dark days of pop-punk. They were around before the internet. They made demo tapes. They recorded 4 LPs, EPs, CDs and even a cassingle. They have been signed and dropped and signed and dropped.

So to say that BoySetsFire’s Nathan Gray knows a thing or two about a good record is an understatement.  Here are five records he told Ghettoblaster that he was enjoying this year.

I Am Heresy – THY WILL

Mogwai – Rave Tapes

Behemoth – The Satanist

Current 93 – I AM THE LAST OF ALL THE FIELD THAT FELL: A CHANNEL

Imogen Heap – Sparks
