Heat Death - 9 Steps to a Happier Life

If there's one band that's managed to perfectly capture the dour bleakness of Midwestern living, it's Milwaukee-based trio Heat Death. 9 Steps to a Happier Life manages to find a noisy, no-wave sweet spot somewhere between the brooding restraint of Detroit's Protomartyr and the smarmy middle-aged punk angst of Pissed Jeans. Stream the album below and make sure you pick up a limited edition cassette from the group's Bandcamp page
