The latest single from Eldridge Rodriguez may be their best yet. The Boston band just released "Without All Your Teeth You Can't Get Into Heaven," which is this interesting gothic New Wave meets country kind of ballad. That might sound like a sonic train wreck, but Cameron Keiber's musical project expertly pulls it off. The song starts off like a Cure song, but with some oddly twangy guitar. When Keiber's crooning vocals take over, the song shifts into the prom song from the coolest 80's movie that never existed. "Without All Your Teeth You Can't Get Into Heaven" is one of the most instantly compelling songs to come out this year, and it just gets more and more so the longer it goes on.
You can listen to "Without All Your Teeth You Can't Get Into Heaven" below. Atrophy is due out September 15 on Midriff Records. For more on Eldridge Rodriguez, check out the band's website.
