Dynamic Truths

Every now and again, we have the chance to jump into our waaaay-back machine in order to present an obscure band that might not have received proper consideration during their first go at the whole music thing. In the case of today's featured artist, there is cause to believe a revival of sorts is underway and the music suggests a definite reason to pay attention. Dynamic Truths were a Richmond, Virginia based post-post-punk outfit that existed between the years 1996 and 2000, with a 7" single released on Merge Records in 1998 and a track that belonged to an early Yep Rock compilation we have failed to locate. The good news? New Jersey label Little Black Cloud (LBC MySpace) will make available a collection of 15 mostly unreleased songs that span the brief history of Dynamic Truths, titled Understanding Is Overrated, on March 16, 2010. There are only 250 copies of this CD retrospective for sale, so contacting the label directly for pre-ordering purposes might be a fairly good idea. Have fun with what we consider a sound that seems to deserve every bit of pop n'crackle our old beat-to-hell vinyl stash has to offer.
