Album Review: Merchandise - A Corpse Wired For Sound

Album Review: Merchandise - A Corpse Wired For Sound

"The alchemical combination of hopefulness and hopelessness runs throughout the album, and is its strongest asset. This starts with Carson Cox, who can sweep from sweet falsetto to disgusted grumble in a single line, and when it’s combined with the motorik power of Merchandise’s industrial sound it’s all the more potent."
