Silver Car Crash’s Resource Body is an eerie album, twisting and turning in on itself in waves of post-punk and riffy rock. It begins with “Curse in the Pines,” a stormy, driving intro that gives way to the swelling soundscape intro of “Medicine,” a song with clearer baritone vocals and a more easygoing, jangly feel. “Medicine” also has the best bass riff on the record; listen for it in the first section of the instrumental bridge. 

Other tracks, like the playfully left-right-panned “Primitive Science” and “Change” have a more grungy, punk-rock feel, with enough reverb to maintain the post-punk vibe. Instrumental “Resource (No Pittsburgh)” and the meandering album-closer, “Blood on Vanessa,” lean very hard into the Bauhaus energy. The tracks feel very late-1970s, early-’80s goth, with the sinister tone of the song somehow beckoning you to dance in the middle of a grimy dance floor.  

For Fans Of: Ought, L Shaped Man by Ceremony, Bauhaus
