End Of A Year – “You Are Beneath Me” LP
The last recording made by End Of A Year before the change of name to Self Defense Family (in 2010). Capturing the band at the peak of their Dischord/emo influenced period (that’s emo in the good sense of the word – they took their name from an Embrace song, afterall), it also catches vocalist Patrick Kindlon at his lyrical best, providing a brilliant and very witty philosophical guide-to-life for generations, past, future and present. Genius. I think enough time has passed now: we can call this album a ‘classic’.
