The Joup Friday Album – The Body: No One Deserves Happiness

5-the-bodyIn getting the last minute hand-off to fill-in for Sonny, I decided to do something a bit different. Normally, I use most of my social media/internet time for spreading my Master’s word. Today though, I thought to myself, “Philp, why not go ahead and punch out for the night, take human form and find a nice woman, some mead, and roll into the weekend with an album that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy.

No pun intended.

So I chose The Body’s 2016 dark and ethereal masterpiece No One Deserves Happiness, not just because I agree with the sentiment expressed in the title, but because I really like the music on this record. What’s more, these guys are the very definition of prolific, and I like that. I like a little blood, sweat, and tears in my music – so long as it’s not the band Blood, Sweat, and Tears. And with at least two records per year for the last three years to their name, The Body offers endless contemplation of the darker side of life. Which is good, because people, eternal damnation means shit gets old.

Okay, back to Vitkauskas next week.
