street sects - the morning after the night we raped death.

Street Sects - The Morning After The Night We Raped Death


1. Bliss
2. Fate On Her Knees
3. We Live

I haven't written up a band submission in a long time, and that's actually not due to a lack of material - there are quite a few I've been meaning to get to, I just haven't had the time.

so, in an effort to dive into that backlog, I figured I'd start off the with short-but-sweet debut seven inch from street sects. sonically, this reminds me a lot of youth code, and I mean that in a good way - it's noisy and harsh but strangely danceable at times and doesn't really conform to any single genre's prevailing paradigms. but who really cares about labels when the music is this enjoyable?

based out of austin, tx, street sects recently made their live debut just before sxsw this year. the next seven inch, the second in what will ultimately be a series of five installments of a series titled, "gentrification," is already in the works. 

as for this one, two hundred copies of black vinyl are for sale now, and when all is said and done, there will eventually be three hundred copies of the five-part box set on colored vinyl for sale.

the black vinyl version is currently for sale on street sects' bandcamp page and the digital version is available as a name-your-price download. I for one can't wait to hear what these guys come out with next. I wish them all the best and look forward to sharing their next release with all of you.

(buy the vinyl or digital version on bandcamp.)


  1. I was sent this as well. I didn't go anywhere with it.

    It's a bit Ministry/Waxtrax but nowt wrong with that. I'd actually pay money to see them live.

    Genuinely put off by the cover. Yeah, you raped death. Shocking eh? So why is death a raped woman?

    Maybe it's just me but there are surely different ways to illustrate an aesthetic.

    1. I don't know, to me, the art didn't seem like a desperate attempt to shock...just a visual representation of the title. and of course there are different ways, but I think they went with a (relatively) tasteful and artistic route.
