East Coast (of America we presume) quartet Eye Flys have only been together a year but have already unleashed their debut album. They contain members of Full of Hell, Backslider and Triac and play a lean form of rock full of killer riffs and oddball rhythms. Never ones to miss a marketing opportunity, Thrill Jockey have released this on 'lard' coloured vinyl amongst other options.

Tub of Lard by Eye Flys

8/10 Will 17 March 2020

Ten apocalyptic bangers here from the East Coast’s Eye Flys. ‘Tub Of Lard’ is an enjoyably snotty album. Vocalist Jake Smith growls, shouts, and bellows like a man possessed. The riffs are giant, gleaming things that move as one with the off-kilter percussion. It’s for this reason that the record never runs away from Eye Flys. They always maintain complete control. 

I'm usually doubtful abpit whether I like music like this, this mixture of harcore, punk, and metal. I think if ‘Tub Of Lard’ wasn’t so mean and tightly-wrought that I might really hate it. But the arrangements are so powerful, so blackened and evil-sounding that I can’t help loving it. The fury is conveyed wonderfully. 

I’m reminded of another set of East Coast bastards - the celestially mighty Wu-Tang Clan. Both have that graceful menace, with completely self-assured vocals and righteous lyrics. Singer Jake Smith deftly addresses problems like body-shaming and the patriarchy without resorting to lame pronouncements. 

For a bracing blast of swagger, you can’t go far wrong with Eye Flys’ ‘Tub Of Lard’.
