The live Digital Leather sound is ugly and raw like a porkchop sitting out in the sun crawling with maggots. But still, you are starving to death. So you eat it. Mmmm.
Digital Leather will be bringing all of this -- synths, grime, rotten pork chops -- to Tempe's The Manor this Saturday night. Question is, will you be there to revel in the all the shameless (or shameful, however you choose to look at it) glory?
Digital Leather is a band that is really all over the place. Foree's sound wavers between pure, garage rock layered with punk and melodic, haunting odes featuring lyrics such as "Long live the new skin / Death to the old flesh / I'm born again / With a sin in my heart" (from the track "My Fame.") It's a trying mixture that sometimes confuses the listener but, ultimately, wins them over. That variety gives Digital Leather's latest LP, Warm Brother its charm -- a charm that will kick you in the ass when you're not looking, but one that you end up buying a few beers at the end of the day.
