The 10 alt-rock discs of Xmas

VulGarrity’s sophomore release, Dance 2 the Grave, picks up where their debut left off, and then proceeds to blow it away. Dance 2 the Grave just sounds bigger, the songs are better. It’s tough describing the Garrity brother-sister dynamic duo, it’s like goth stoner funk with the primary instruments being bass and drums, while sounding like nothing anyone would really ever describe as funk. The lead single “Freakshow” kicks off with almost prog-rock guitar loop before settling into low end jam. “Murderhand” rocks while being post-new wave dance juggernaut. The sinister siblings won this year’s WXIN Rock Hunt and are currently on tour.
