Track Of The Day: Primary Structures - "The Farm"


Do you remember rock bands?  Guitar, bass, drums, vocals...nothing else?  It often feels that if you didn't start your rock band before 2005 then nobody cares.  Most music bloggers don't want to cover new rock music unless you throw in some synths, explore ambient noise, or repeat a gimmick on every track (see Sleigh Bells).  Primary Structures are just what we need, a rock band with no frills, focused on creating solid rock music with a vocalist that isn't afraid to sing without heavy effects.  On "The Farm" we get a catchy electric guitar riff, a pounding bass line, and percussion that glues it all together.  While a lot of bands confuse their sounds on purpose to reach the label of "art", Primary Structures are writing solid songs that makes me yearn for the likes of early Interpol, Bloc Party, and Franz Ferdinand.  There is still a place for straightforward rock music, Primary Structures act as great reminder.
