Burnside Album Details

Flatfoot 56, 'Toil' LP

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.
