MZTN 「おいおいこれが本当にLoma Prietaですか?」と突っ込まずにはいられないジャンク/オルタナ感満載のナンバー「Continuum」が衝撃的だ。タイトルの意味は、「連続体」ということになる。過去US激情、エモバイオレンス文脈からの繋がりをそこに見出せるかが試されている。結構Gouge Awayなんかの存在も影響しているのか、現行の激情で新しい価値観を生み出そうとしているShin GuardやFor Your Healthへのアンサーなのか。とにかくLoma Prietaは変化していくことを選んだわけだ。今後の作品でどう展開してくるのか。僕は変化を支持する。 Favorite track: Fate.

Continuum 03:48
Every day is so surreal I'm going to work And I'm calling out sick. I can't get out of my fucking head I guess all the drug abuse isn't a real Attempt now is it? Hiding on the nighttime side of earth Never touched by sunlight They're tracking my phone, They're keeping the minutes At least I know I'll never be alone. I can feel my heart breaking every night Monopoly dollar Treet trunk painted white I took a loss They're keeping the minutes They'll coax you back The one dollar bills smell different. Can't drink poison And expect someone else to die I'm calling out sick I'm a body where my brain is. I guess all the drug abuse Isn't a real attempt Now is it? The one dollar bills smell different Race to the middle Movers moving Continuum City of broken glass Continuum

Fate 02:07
You tell me Honesty Is it the best policy? The jury is still out. I cut the judge off at "Be seated" Don't let the truth change anything. Turn and walk away. Because I don't believe in fate Mascara stained pillowcase The sun went dim So we turned to a backup source Drugs and god The same distractions Lay on the dirty floor and stare At the ceiling like it was A planetarium dome

about

"Continuum b/w Fate" is a new two song single from Loma Prieta, recorded by engineer Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Oathbreaker). A-side "Continuum" is artistic editorial in the self-damning that many face on a day to day basis. Playing as an examination of the perpetual motion that contemporary society demands of each one of us. Musically it glides infectiously with new depth and fuzzed out control. B-side "Fate" uses Pixies-esque lightness to veil the weight of its message before erupting into musical chaos. Here they disguise disgust with melody while singing "Drugs and God the same distractions / Lay on the dirty floor and stare at the ceiling, like it was a planetarium dome". Expanding their unmistakeable screamo approach into powerful Fugazi-like territory.
