Kill Me Tomorrow

Skin’s Getting Weird

Gold Standard Laboratories

On Skin’s Getting Weird, Kill Me Tomorrow pick up where they left off on their last release: all nervous energy and post-punk sensibility. The title track sounds like some long lost Bauhaus epic hybridized through the peculiar lyricism of the Fall or Wire. The rhythm section lurches to and fro, hurdy-gurdy, while the singer in a deadpan sing/speak voice goes, “sha, la, la.” The second track, “What’s All These Teeth About?,” is a fretful rocker, the perfect accompaniment to chasing someone through a crowded subway station, before you stomp them to death. KMT also throws in a note-for-note cover of Suicide’s “Ghost Rider,” a remix of the aforementioned “Skin’s Getting Weird” and an ubiquitous track, “Put the Time Machine in Your Mouth,” that exists in two parts (indescribable, it must simply be heard).
