Here's something that flew under my radar when it was initially released. The debut LP from Georgia's post-punk/goth stalwart Entertainment is an excellent ride through post-2000s death rock (is that what it's called?). Clearly, this is not something I'm really an expert on, but here's my misinformed take on the album:

The band seems to take its cues from goth legends Christian Death and 45 Grave (Confession/Real Talk: I think these are the only death rock bands I listen to, let alone can actually name) with a little bit of Pornography-era Cure thrown in the mix. What this amounts to is a fairly concise, eight-song album that is just the right length. Their setup is fairly conventional for the genre: Creepy keyboards/organs create a foreboding atmosphere, while wiry guitars and a pounding, yet subdued rhythm section holds everything together. The vocals are actually really effective, as his delivery isn't ridiculous and dramatic and his lyrics are in no way hilariously verbose. What I'm saying is that I don't laugh at him like I would if I was listening to the unintentional comedy gold of Rozz Williams.

One slight problem with the album is that in maintaining such a uniform atmosphere, one can get a little too carried away and, towards the end, things start to blend together a little too much. This is not to say the album is homogeneous, but its atmosphere can have this effect. Maybe I just have ADD. However, before one can get completely lulled away, the album ends on "Flesh!," which is a really sick ending to the album and probably my favorite song from the band. It's really awesome. Since my understanding of this specific subgenre is pretty elementary, let's just say this song is Entertainment's "Romeo's Distress." I suck.

Anyway, I encourage you all to check this album out. It's a really great modern take on 80s post-punk that doesn't sound too contrived or ham-fisted. Also, for what it's worth, it was voted the album of the year on deathrock.com. I guess that's cool?
