Complainer - Floodplain

A blur of punk music. Fast paced drums, seemingly beyond human speeds. Guitar chopping away at serenity with massive amplified riffs. Vocals reminiscent of some hybrid mix between early Bad Brains and angular Pylon.

Floodplain is a timeless effort in the realm of simple raw energy. There is a tenacious preciseness cementing these eight tracks, like both strings and percussion are being conducted by some unknown mathematical equation. Complainer constantly pours sounds out, the mind overflowing with a spilling brim of notes.

Mabel Suen and Joe Hess are the musicians making up Complainer. Together their sound is a double espresso with two scoops of ceremonial Matcha whisked in before consumption. Decibel destruction of the inner cortex as the perennial mosh pit wails on the soul. Be ready when pressing play on this cassette, there will be no rest.

Floodplain was released on Already Dead Tapes and Records. Tapes made in an edition of one hundred. This is their debut album and unfortunately for cassette fans who did not purchase Floodplain, this one sold out. Fortunately, this composition can be heard and purchased digitally from Already Dead and if you live in the St. Louis area, you can see this band live.
