Wild’s End  - October 2014 – Black Numbers

From its roiling first chords, Wild’s End, the debut full-length from Chicago, IL transplants Typesetter, exhibits a certain turmoil. The sentiment might be most explicit in “Obvious Imperfections,” the opening track on which guitars snarl and nip at drums that careen, baring teeth, into the tussle. ““The worst fucking time of year,” guitarists and singers Marc Bannes and Kyle McDonald roar together during a turbulent chorus, “When everything is covered in dirty snow and jaded reasons for living / I think that you’re only in love because you’re cold / Can’t you understand that I just want to be alone?” This, of course, is by design, says Bannes, who considers Wild’s End the band’s attempt to reconcile struggle. It’s in their lyrics, sure, but also in the vocals on “Lapsed Asshole,” which rise together in harmony before falling into a simmering sea murky chords. It’s in the disembodied guitars at the beginning of “Nietzsche in Florida” that mutate into noisy poltergeists during its final chorus. For Typesetter, this isn’t simply negativism for complaining’s sake. It about catharsis and camaraderie. If Wild’s Endis an album about struggle, then it is not only about the strength one acquires through perseverance, but the means by which the band persevered.”
