    Debt Begins at 30

    Cary, TFP, Eli und Gavin kehren als The Gotobeds mit ihrem dritten Album "Debt Begins at 30" zum Kampf zurück. Auf "Debt Begins At 30" sind der hörbare Esprit de Corps und die angstfreie Freude, die auch schon ihre anderen Veröffentlichungen ausgemacht haben, im Vordergrund. Die Oktanzahl ist hoch, der Motor klopft und die Batterie ist überladen: The Gotobeds spielen den Folk der Steel City Pittsburgh. "Debt Begins At 30" ist ein altmodischer Hochofen, aus dem das flüssige Eisen strömt. Und obwohl The Gotobeds nie eine Band war, die Unterstützung anderer Musiker brauchte, gibt es auf jedem Track des Albums Gastbeiträge. Der blutrünstige Album Opener "Calquer the Hound" wartet mit Kumpel Evan Richards und Rob Henry von Kim Phuc auf. "Calquer the Hound" hat Wohlklang, eine schlaue Bridge, viele markante Drum-Beats und ein spaciges Outro. Für gesangliche Unterstützung bei der Single "Twin Cities" klopfte die Band bei Tracy Wilson - früher bei Dahlia Seed und derzeit bei Positive No - an. Das Ergebnis ist ein überschwänglicher, nach vorne preschender Pop-Song. "Debt Begins At 30", der Titeltrack, beinhaltet die Zauberei von Mike Seamans und Legende Bob Weston und ist ein brütender Taumel mit Tribal Beats und Slash-and-Burn-Gitarre. Es überrascht ebenfalls nicht, dass die Gotobeds ihre "Partner-in-Crime" Kollegen Protomartyr ein paar Mal angerufen haben, wobei Joe Casey "Slang Words" unterstützt und Greg Ahee "On Loan" zerfetzt hat. "Slang Words" ist eine pikante Abrissbirne mit einem knirschenden Biss, "On Loan" ein hymnisches Jangle-Fest mit hochkarätiger Bundarbeit. Zu den weiteren Gästen gehören 12XU-Labelchef Gerard Cosloy, Matt Barnhart (Tre Orsi), die wunderbare Victoria Ruiz von den Downtown Boys, Bob Nastanovich (Pavement, Silver Jews), der Pittsburgher Wortschmied Jason Baldinger und American Idol Finalist Scott MacIntyre.

    Poor People Are Revolting

    [engl] The Gotobeds' members come from Pittsburgh, Penn., a place notorious for keeping great local bands to itself. But the racket these guys kick up on their first album, Poor People Are Revolting, might be too strong for the city to contain. Guitarists Eli Kasan and Tom Payne spent the last few years as part of the local hardcore band Kim Phuc. Joined by bassist Gavin Jensen and drummer Cary Belbeck, they bring that energy to The Gotobeds, a rowdy, ramshackle party house of a band, built on the intersecting bedrock of post-punk and indie rock. On Poor People Are Revolting, there's something crazy going on in every room, the front porch and the backyard: a party that never dies down or seems to stop, even as the neighbors complain and the cops drive past. Working from the spirit and fundamentals of a small handful of influences — the design sense and intellectual rowdiness of The Fall; the constant evolution and masterful poker faces of Wire, from whose drummer these guys borrowed their name; the sturdy, heroic melodic sense and layered tape-loop production of Mission of Burma — The Gotobeds' members paint a dirty, driven, vulgar portrait of Rust Belt restlessness. Poor People rockets out of the gate with "Fast Trash," a great intro to The Gotobeds' boundless energy. Two-parter "Wasted on Youth/Melted Candle" starts out with a tuneful riff that ratchets past pandemonium. Every song here is an honest-to-goodness anthem, ready to sweep you up in the throttling, last-call anxiety that permeates the band's work — even through all 10 minutes of the single repetitive riff that makes up "Secs Tape." Were these guys from New York City, they'd probably be too tired and broke to play with this level of fevered, feral inspiration. With no fear of being priced out, they launch one of the greatest arguments against Big Apple living with their single "NY's Alright." Like the album's title, the song is a double-edged sword, couching the relative excitement of New York (and hearing all about it from everyone who's moved there) against the reality of people staring into their cellphones on crowded sidewalks, constantly trying to maintain a standard of living that The Gotobeds can enjoy for next to nothing. The sentiment is hammered home in the video for the track, as the band drops a Parquet Courts LP out of its sleeve, only to see it shatter on the floor. One of the strongest American rock debuts in years, Poor People Are Revolting is an obscene gesture hoisted toward anyone who'd claim that the genre is dead.
