Rage, Bleach and Time: 23 And Beyond The Infinite and John T. Lamielle Reviewed

23 And Beyond The Infinite and John T. Lamielle Reviewed

John T. Lamielle – Black Mold

Similar artists: Jesse Stewart, Pat The Bunny, Wingnut Dishwashers Union

Genre: Folk punk

Regardless of what your mom may have told you, the world loves a troublemaker and screw-up. But they’ll love ‘em as long as they can satisfyingly entertain them. Inspired by folk punk and an almost maniacal love of mischief, John T. Lamielle is here to oblige us. 

History always changes itself to accompany the story of screw-ups properly. Their tales look better on camera and sound nicer in songs. John Lennon isn’t more famous than Paul McCartney because the former wrote “Sometimes in New York City.” It’s because one of them could throw an insult, or a punch toward a stranger, and the other wouldn’t. 

If your young adult life is a bit aimless and filled with rage, then the soundtrack for it may well resemble John T. Lamielle’s “Black Mold.” It’s a charmingly nihilistic cry fitted over acoustic guitars. It’s the sort of tune that is unlikely to start the musician on a career of busking but one that could eventually make him one of the foremost authorities on knee-deep in mud folk-punk.


23 And Beyond The Infinite – Back On the Road To the Next World

Similar artists: IDLES, Viagra Boys, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Crows, Metz

Genre: Post-Punk, Garage Rock, Alternative Rock

Aggressive rock music is to the mainstream a bit like day drinking is to a British person – it just sort of sneaks up on you from time to time. Recently, a number of angry, humorous, post-punk-inspired groups have found a home in the hearts of global audiences. 23 And Beyond The Infinite creates a sound that makes them candidates to achieve the same. 

But why are punk and hard-rock’s success something cyclical? Perhaps it has more to do with the way most people view entertainment than it does with the way this music sounds. Generally, folks like nice tunes about good times. It’s only when bad times and terrible news are everywhere that these become tunes with which they can no longer connect. 

23 And Beyond The Infinite’s “Back On the Road To the Next World” sounds as mean as an unfed doberman being poked through the fence with a stick. Musically, it shares a lot with the brand of sped-up post-punk employed by bands like IDLES and Viagra Boys. It’s modern rage for new problems. And despite the clear nihilism, these may just be the sounds that get you out of bed in the morning.
