I'm listening to a record I recently found called Forty Acre Fugue by a band called Gneissmaker. It's not on YouTube; the only thing of theirs that is is a four-years-older split single that sucks shit. They improved markedly between then and the full-length, though. It's a remarkably singular sound, somewhere between Jazz, Thrash, Math Rock, and Noise Rock. Imagine something like a combination of Helmet, Coroner, Watchtower, Don Caballero, Dazzling Killmen, and Hammerhead - the band were from Minneapolis but sound a little too Metal for AmRep - a shame, because they could have used wider exposure. This being 1994, they also seemed to pioneer the idea of sentence-long nonsensical song titles ('You May Not Be Able To Take The Predator Out Of Your Pet, But You Should Never Allow Your Pet To Take The Blood Out Of You' and others) later used by Math Rock bands like Don Cab and Oxes, which was picked up by a few Metalcore bands and then became a staple of scene kid mallcore like Panic! At the Disco. Would be interested to learn of the true origin of this trope ngl.

Since I can't post a song off of it, I'll post this one instead, which is very good as well. Been into this album a lot lately, with this song being particularly expressive. I have to say this captures better than nearly anything else seething hopelessness and corrosive fatigue, a chimera of sadness and anger that rattles inside hollow bones and stays for days. This song reminds me of my sophomore year of college, marching under fluorescent lights from nowhere to nowhere, drifting through dead, snow-covered streets with a dim recognition of lit windows set against the backdrop of chasmic emptiness. A period during which I was decisively severed from ordinary life with no hope of return and in which a vague presentiment of universal hatred made a propitious return, eventually.

Accidentally came across this song by clicking on the wrong one when searching for a different song with the same song title so decided to give it a listen. Not disappointed. Decent song.

The stone that the builder refuse
Will always be the head cornerstone-a sing it brother
The stone that the builder refuse
Will always be the head cornerstone
You're a builder, baby
Here I am, a stone
Don't you pick and refuse me
'Cause the things people refuse
Are the things they should choose
Do you hear me?
Hear what I say!
Stone that the builder refuse
Will always be the head cornerstone-a tell me why
The stone that the builder refuse, yeah!
Will always be the head cornerstone
Here I am baby
I am, a builder's stone!
Don't you pick and refuse me, listen
The tings people refuse
Are the things they should use
Do you hear me
Hear what I say
The stone that the builder refuse
Will always be the head cornerstone
The stone that the builder refuse
Will always be the head cornerstone
The stone that the builder refuse
Will always be the head cornerstone
The stone that dem builder refuse
Will always be the head cornerstone
The stone that the builder refuse
Will always be the head cornerstone
The stone...



A reference from the Bible, Psalm 118: because he was very spiritual which gives an impact on the listener and hear how rejected he felt. And, Matthew 21:42: Then Jesus asked them, "Didn't you ever read this in the Scriptures? The stone that the builders rejected has now become the cornerstone. This is the Lord's doing, and it is wonderful to see.
