There has been no shortage of scrappy, wiry post-punk in the opening quarter of 2017 but few have been as scrappy, as wiry, or as vicious as Blessed’s “Headache”, a track that brings to mind both forebears like Les Savy Fav and contemporaries like Ought. There’s an unbelievable amount of tension and nervous energy running through the five minutes of “Headache”, which keeps the track compelling, energetic, and surprisingly thoughtful. It’s an intense, insistent song that easily ranks as the band’s finest work. Hit play and hold on tight, “Headache” is a fearsome ride.
