TGIF: How To Destroy Angels

City LightsHaving a loopy or lazy Friday? I hear you, brothers and sisters. I was away in Collingwood for work and am most certainly ready for the slow crawl to the weekend (read: nap) to end. If you're needing a tiny lift, and haven't yet listened to Trent Reznor's side project How To Destroy Angels, then you might just find everything you're looking for in one place. Or better yet, a few songs.

Despite assembling in 2010, releasing a few EPs and contributing a song to the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo soundtrack, the band's debut full-length, Welcome Oblivion, was released only last month. It's currently streaming for free over at Pitchfork - and trust me, it's just the nifty spoonful of sugar you need to add that hop in your step today. At times dark and beat heavy and other times surprisingly bouncy, HTDA hit the nail on the head with this diverse and experimental release; particularly these two tracks, one of which, quite literally, tells you to wake up.

I mean, did we really expect anything less of the great Trent Reznor, though? No. We didn't. Have a lovely weekend with this one.
