Today I wanted to take a moment to talk about how excited for the new album from Garbage (who are one of the bands dearest to my heart), which came on June 11th: No Gods No Masters. Garbage has been really special to me ever since their self-titled album when I was a teeneger. This new release is no different, with the band’s signature heavy guitars and electronic aspects, and as always, lyrics which resonate with me on a personal level.
No Gods No Masters is another timely release, protesting injustices while promoting kindness, all the while maintaing Shirley’s often crude (and fun) manner. I feel like some of their best songs to date are on this album, and the second disc includes some singles which were released between albums, which is a great way to catch up if you’ve missed anything, or just a nice place to have everything together.
So the music is great (I feel like longtime fans will be happy), and so is the message. Themes of equality and kindness are ones that everyone should take to heart.
