GROUNDED Season 2, Ep. 13 feat. Naked Giants, The Grizzled Mighty, & Marina Albero


Seattle’s Naked Giants burst onto the national music scene with their 2018 full-length debut, SLUFF, a candied and insanely catchy blast of unhinged pop-punk-grunge-surf-rock. But if that record was the sound of, as one reviewer labeled them, a trio of “affable miscreants just out of high school” getting their musical rocks off, then The Shadow, the band’s new and second studio effort, is in comparison a decidedly more—what’s the word?—mature offering. That is, if “mature” is the appropriate term for an album where one member is credited with playing a fun machine, and another merely with “charisma.” And so, welcome once again to the extraordinary and eccentric world of Naked Giants. They might be older (average age: 23) and wiser, but the band members—singer and guitarist Grant Mullen, singer and bassist Gianni Aiello and drummer Henry LaVallee—are still out to conjure a rip-roaring good time.

Welcome to the world of The Grizzled Mighty. An audio spatial concept not constricted by the limitations of fidelity, and expounds upon its quantitative capacity to the point of frenzy. A force greater than gravity, pulling you in past the event horizon to be swallowed down to the belly of compressed luminiferous aether. Inescapable and all encompassing, every electron will be sonically deconstructed only to reemerge whole again, but unsure of the existential paradox of consciousness and creation. Such as the particles of CERN, thrown together at the brink of cosmic terminal velocity, observers brace for impact and watch in awe for the creation of previously undiscovered fundamental auditory elements and dwell in the fear for what has been unlocked. The singularity of a new genesis at first exposure to the omnificent aural matrix. Embark on the next phase of sonic quantization. Embrace, harness, and transform the potential of reverberation to kinetic auricular dissociation and back again in such perpetuity that outlasts the celestial bodies that created us all. There is no beginning. There is no end. There is no escaping The Grizzled Mighty.
