I was recently introduced to these guys, and I cannot listen to anything else anymore. Laura is so wonderful.

 

Favorites are "I Was a Teenage Anarchist," "Thrash Unreal," and all of TDB.


Actually, TDB is straight-up just one of the best albums I've ever heard. My heart has broken more times listening to those 10 songs than any others.

Yeah Transgender Dysphoria Blues is one hell of a record. There's a lot of pain in those lyrics and you can really sense what Laura's been through during her lifetime.
''As if you were my fucking pimp, as if I was your fucking whore.'' - one of the many lines that gets me every time. Brilliant band with great sense for melody, melancholy and brutally honest heartbreaking lyrics.

It's hard to choose a line, because there's so many amazing ones. "You want them to notice the ragged ends of your summer dress" is so specific, yet so wonderfully encapsulating of all the desire in there. It's one of my favorites, but the real heartbreaker for me, I think, is "standing naked in front of that hotel bathroom mirror, in her dysphoria's reflection, she still saw her mother's son."

Just got a ticket to see them with The Gaslight Anthem and I'm so fucking excited, omg. TDB is wonderful and I can't wait to hear how the personal songs translate live!

I saw Against Me! live a couple days ago and recorded most of it. I can post a download link if anyone wants it.
