The Body – I Have Fought Against It (Ltd. Colored 2LP+MP3)

Image: 1618608 Absolutely no one makes music like The Body.
On their follow up to 2016’s acclaimed No One Deserves Happiness,
the Portland duo of Lee Buford and Chip King conjure the sublime
from the unexpected by turning their compositional approach on its
head. The Body continue to defy the constraints of what it means
to be a “heavy” band, seamlessly combining diverse in?uences for
an utterly singular sound. The album’s contributors include Kristin
Hayter (Lingua Ignota), Michael Berdan (Uniform), and Ben Eberle
(Sandworm), as well as frequent collaborator Chrissy Wolpert
(Assembly of Light Choir). Production was handled by Machines
With Magnets (Lightning Bolt, Battles).
The Body transcend musical boundaries. Their ambitious creativity
shapes their bleak worldview into propulsive, affecting, and even
danceable music often drenched in distortion.
The Body will be touring throughout 2018, including appearances at
Roadburn and Sled Island festivals.
The Body have recently collaborated with Full of Hell, Thou, Krieg,
Haxan Cloak, and Wrekmeister Harmonies.
