Fat History Month – “Sad History Month”

Sad History Month

“These old men will teach you the true meaning of Fucking Despair,” it says in the dark-humored bio on Boston-based Fat History Month’s blogspot.  This sprawling 6 1/2 minute track sure proves it.  Holding down a Microphones/Mount Eerie vibe, the track undergoes several dramatic changes, all with wearied lyrics, sickly sung and barely heard.  It’s always evident that these guys see humor in the dark things, from the album art to the band name to song titles to lyrics like “my mom told me that I should get reset. I agree. But it’s not that easy.”  Sure, life’s disappointing and depressing, but I guess that’s all right.
