The Horrors – Lout

This is not an album, like I had thought. It’s just a three song single/EP. In fact, I don’t even know what this is. I think I’ve listened to this band before and liked them back in the late 2000s. This seems a lot different from what I remember.

It sounds like industrial goth on the lines of Ministry or KMFDM from the 90s. It’s not a type of music I seek out on a regular basis, but I’m digging the vibe of these three songs. It feels like I’m in some sort of S&M club waiting for my absinthe drink to be delivered. (I don’t know how any of this works.)

I’m going to go find the earlier The Horrors albums, Skying and Primary Colours, and try to make sense of what I thought this band was supposed to sound like.
