Priests Nothing Feels Natural

Washington, DC quartet Priests prove that punk is alive and well in the Nation's Capital.

Greg says it is an ambitious“critique of nothing less than America”full of sarcastic views on politics and capitalism. Those heavy ideas are bouyed by a“fantastic rhytm section”that keeps Greg "spinning around an imaginary dance floor".

The D.C. punk band Priests has returned with its second album, The Seduction of Kansas.

He also loves the way Priests makes music in general: its sophistication“never detracts from the sheer ‘bang your head on the wall’ joy of this noisy chaos.”Greg agrees that the band members express themselves in a very eloquent and thoughtful way.
