It's refreshing to see that the screamo-emo-hardcore stylings many of us grew up enjoying, though often denied, is again becoming a popular genre. Local trio Dowager have been receiving much and well deserved press as eclipsing purveyors of this musical class, especially with their long awaited and recently released Title Track EP.
Title Track, which came out the day after November's notorious food fest, is five songs worth of formulaically aggressive screamocore that translates into an addicting experience in headphones and on stage.
Dowager's all-ages release show for Title Track will be this Saturday at Black Water with the bewitchingly darling Bashface, Seattle's Curse League and one of the best band names to come out of 2016, Dranky Skelerton (members of Robot Boy and Don Quixote).
If you haven't been doing this already, stream Title Track again and again until the weekend.
