Album on Rotation Today—Constantines by Constantines

Constantines: Constantines Album Review | Pitchfork

Indeed, they are amplifiers, as all overgrown teens are. They’re emotional burn victims, holed up in their rooms, reading portentous comic books. Maybe they read Alan Moore’s Swamp Thing and identify with the isolated, elemental monster. All teenagers are Swamp Things. They long for Alan Moore’s other character, John Constantine, to come and tell them what they are, and that they and they alone can halt an apocalypse of the soul. Live forever, Constantines.

Damn good gruff rock record I’d completely forgotten about.
