LACE - Human Condition LP

by Lace

18.90 / Sold Out


The debut LP from Houston powerhouse Lace.

Crawling out of the darkness in early 2016, Houston's Lace grabbed several lifetimes of depression, displacement, and outsider feelings, and stuffed them into one-minute blasts of brutal, lo-fidelity hardcore.
When the time came to record their first full-length album, Lace took an abrupt, defiant turn from the grainy hardcore of their demo, expanding both in terms of creative reach and production quality.
On the 10 songs that make up "Human Condition", Lace is still dealing in themes of antisocial lonerdom and crushing anxiety, and still blanketing their songs in swarms of feedback, speed and volume.
Instead of sticking to any pre-explored style, however, the band meshes desolate hardcore angst with restless post-punk experimentalism and an unplaceable undercurrent of thoughtfulness that almost leaves an impression of a hope somewhere deep beneath the din.
Channeling the cryptic wandering of Swans or This Heat as much as they do the anger of Detestation, Lace offers an uncompromising and unapologetically challenging set of emotional hurdles to jump as the record quickly shifts moods.
