Latterman, the Loved Ones and the Menzingers. Those are the three comparisons the Holy Mess warrant on their new seven-inch, Benefit Sesh, and if that doesn't get you stoked on their music, congrats, you're a dick. Get out of my face. This seven-inch's lone flaw is that it's only two songs long, whi.


Latterman, the Loved Ones and the Menzingers. Those are the three comparisons the Holy Mess warrant on their new seven-inch, Benefit Sesh, and if that doesn't get you stoked on their music, congrats, you're a dick. Get out of my face. This seven-inch's lone flaw is that it's only two songs long, which is a heck of a tease.

"Goodbye 3713 (Must've Been a Good One)" is an interesting song about drinking, with an infectious chorus about an alcoholic narrator who is pushing away all of his loved ones. Basically, it's a really good song about someone who is probably really bad at living. It's the better of the two tracks, although "A Soulful Punk Tune About a Working Class Dreamer" is still mighty fine.

Those who follow through on the vinyl's attached digital download coupon will receive a bonus track, "I Think Corduroy Is Making a Comeback," another catchy number to help tide listeners over until the Holy Mess gets their shit together and records a full-length.

These guys fucking bring it live.

Thought it was going to be hard to up Dismount!, but it's the 7" of the year so far... unless their newer gets released this year.

Good 7", awful dudes. The worst!

"Goodbye" is a conversation that Stevo is having with his dead dog. Not about alcoholism but about loss and regret.

I have a hard time fathoming just who in the world “A Soulful Punk Tune About a Working Class Dreamer” could possibly be referring to.
