Misanthropology or Misogynecology

I've been listening to KVLR a lot lately. It's not a radio station (or a building material, like Tyvek). KVLR is a band (like Tyvek). Here's my favorite song from KVLR's 2004 self-titled album. The song predicts "a generation of a$&#%s and w&*%s". A bit dark, I'll grant you, but it's quite catchy.

The song title "Birthcam" seems an appropriate metaphor for a generation that thinks it has something novel to say (and worthy of posting to the internet) about experiences that have been common throughout human history. On the other hand, I still find it exciting to discover bands that can do something novel with the guitar/bass/drums format. So there's that.

KVLR is RIYL Fugazi, Chavez, and Swervedriver. (Me? Yes, yes, and hell yes.) Buy
KVLR (the album) brand new from the label for $3.00! I call that a bargain, the best you'll ever have.
