They played the lion’s share of new album Relatives in Descent and, as good as that record is (and it’s very good), songs like “Here is the Thing,” “Windsor Hum,” and “Male Plague” are even better, darker and more intense live.

There’s a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video Of The Day are a cut (or two) above.
