This isn’t so much about the Wildlife album as it is about my recent and rapidly growing love for La Dispute in general. Easily this record has pushed itself in to my all time top 10. Simply, ultimate purge. Vocally, they are brutal, musically they are less so. They sit in that fairly unspecific post-rock or post-hardcore genre. I can’t decide whether it is a bit emo, or in fact just wholesomely honest. All the kids know all the words to everything. It’s spiritualistic. A bit scary maybe, but it blew my mind.
