The Living Means :: The Downside



The Living Means struck me immediately. Not only are they damned good, their sound is totally unique. You may be able to pull out a few influences--  early grunge, pop punk, maybe even some metal. Yet they never really sound like any of them. They are heavy, dirty, deep, and sometimes menacing. They make you want to be in a dark club with sweat beading on the walls.

 

The Downside is 6 tracks that throw you into a pit, rile you up, and then safely put you back down. They expertly weave their influences together to create some unbelievable tracks.
