I've seen Toronto post-punk band Casper Skulls a few times now, and I like them more and more with each listening. I'm loving their latest album Mercy Works and I'm sure it will make it onto my best of list for this year.
I first saw Casper Skulls at The Garrison opening for Screaming Females in 2015. Roy Cohen caught them at Lee's Palace in 2016. I then saw them at CMW 2017 at Lee's Palace. Click through on those venue names to see those pics.
This time my expectations were raised and I still came away impressed. Not much more I can say about this band's powerful and gigantic sounding songs, strong melodies and always greater intensity that I haven't already said before. Listen to them. Go see them. Buy their music. Love them.
