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
