Animal Lover

Animal Lover


You can always count on the shadow corners of the Midwest to ooze out some solid sludge punk just when it’s needed. Fargo, North Dakota’s Animal Lover have been at it for near four years now, slipping out a single and a debut album. But they’re upping the ante with their new album, Guilt, due out May 20 on Learning Curve Records. Stuffed with that meat’n’potatoes post-core pound that’s been around since the Amphetamine Reptile heydays, the band can slink and be subtle too. It’s yet another piece of evidence in the long line of proof that ripped flannel and old jeans can often hide a simmering soul of agitated invention.
