Another year, another fantastic Record Store Day release by Garbage. This time around it’s “The Chemicals,” which features Brian Aubert of Silversun Pickups. But don’t expect it to sound like Silversun Pickups because it really doesn’t. At all. It simply sounds like a fantastic new Garbage song, one which would seem to exist somewhere between their Bleed Like Me and Not Your Kind of People albums. Raw and rocking, but with the layers of sound that made Garbage famous. It’s what happens when you have a band where all four members are producers; your songs are crammed full of luscious little details with as many electronic flourishes as there are raw guitars. I was already looking forward to the next Garbage album but is making me rather impatient — I want it now already.
PS: Shirley Manson rules.
