Whenever we get a submission from Hausu Mountain Records, we know we're in for something unique. The latest is the new single from New York City's Kill Alters. Led by Bonnie Baxter, the band is set to release their debut full length and "Dissect Me" is the first song off of that album. The song starts off with an intense burst of noise. If you can last the first fifteen or so seconds, you're in for a treat. (Of course, if you can't "Dissect Me" probably isn't for you.) Although the noise never quite goes away (and why should it), it slowly fades away revealing the song underneath. "Dissect Me" is a clusterfuck of multiple genres all coexisting together, sometimes happily and sometimes in direct opposition to each other. The song is equally laid back and intense while combining 90's indie rock, digital hardcore, hip hop, noise rock, and who knows what else you'll pick up on. It's the kind of song that pummels itself into your skull at some times, makes you want to groove in your chair at others, and at other points both at the same time.
You can listen to "Dissect Me" below. Armed to the Teeth L.M.O.M.M. is due out February 11 on Hausu Mountain Records. The album can be pre-ordered via Bandcamp. For more on Kill Alters, check out the artist's Facebook and Twitter.
