Why do we like this?
I'm very possibly coming late on the Wise Blood scene, but I'm content with being there at all. Following music so closely is exciting, but many times new artists sounds like shades of musician past, notes blurring together. Wise Blood is the most exciting kind of find, one that is not only indisputably talented but unique.

The Pittsburg-based band is composed of singer/songwriter Chris Laufman, originator of the group, plus two other members who kick it for live sets. With one EP out and about, Wise Blood is preparing to release an LP at the beginning of next year before SXSW.

Single "Loud Mouths" is more than just your average song. Ever so fiercely whispering, Laufman throws down frank and abrupt statements like "We can head to the show, come throw powder up your nose and when I make money I'll buy you clothes." The finished sound is bewitching and bold just as the lyrics are written. It's almost as if Laufman is giving a musical bitch slap to negativity encountered in his life, dumping attitude over an aggressively omnipotent background of hums, screams, piano, and drums. Not gonna lie, the style is pretty badass.

Parallels to bands such as Animal Collective and Queen can be heard listening to individual facets but trying to categorize this band into one genre is a futile task. Elements of soul, electronic, R&B, gospel, blues, and jazz are all mangled together for a wonderfully unique and invigorating experience. Recession got you down? Just remember this tidbit of wisdom from Laufman: you've got these loud bitches, loud bitches, tellin you lies. Don't listen to those girls, they're just snakes in disguise.
