Giant Claw's "DARK WEB 005" Will Challenge Your Brain and Ears and Sense of Self Probably

But, like, in a good way.

Confession: I don't know if I actually enjoy "DARK WEB 005" by Giant Claw, and if I'm being super honest, I don't know if you will either. It moves too quickly, features too many dissonant noises working in conjunction with each other, and is such a deeply strange track that your brain will be unable to process it in one listen. Yeah, there's that one part where the drones and the harpsichords kinda get together and some drums kick in and suddenly it's a coherent dance track, but that only lasts a minute and then everything breaks down yet again and you're like "who the fuck invited the oboe player to this song premiere?" Also the statue on the cover of the single has balls but no dick it looks like? Anyways, these are why this song is difficult, but this song is also great. It's not like some crazy sonic puzzle or anything, but it's definitely one of those songs you have to listen to a few times intently and think about it for a few minutes before you "get" it. So if you like music that makes you smarter, you should listen to this. If you for some reason decided to click this link and read this entire paragraph without listening to this, I don't know what to tell you. Anyways, pre-order the the Giant Claw album here, and if you're in Pittsburgh on October 1st, he'll be playing VIA fest.
