Burnside Album Details
Flatfoot 56, 'Toil'
Flatfoot 56s 2012 album has finally been reissued. Some have suggested that Toil would be less raucous than previous albums, but the band’s well-noted hardcore-tinged sound is still present. “Brother, Brother” starts fast and never slows down, a blisteringly paced barnburner of an opening track, carried by bagpipes, aggressive yells, dirty guitars and a huge chorus. Meanwhile, other tracks like first single “I Believe It” showcase a more rootsy, folk-oriented side of the band. Gang vocals and pounding drums allow Flatfoot 56 to retain its signature sound throughout the album.
