The best local discs of '10

By CHRIS CONTI  |  December 22, 2010

Siblings Shawn and Tracy Garrity feed primarily on horror movies and Queens of the Stone Age, and their October follow-up to the '08 debut If You Sing It, They Will Hum . . . is a primal culmination of heavy thunder and musty dance floor funk, with the must-hear tracks "Tortured," "Don't Go In the House" and the opener, "All Hallow's Eve." There's even a cover of Peter Gabriel's "Shock the Monkey" smack-dab in the middle. But for all the mausoleum organs and psycho-killer obsessions, VulGarrity is far from corny, horror-rock schlock, as anyone who has ever caught their jaw-dropping live set can attest.

Be on the lookout for our "What's Ahead for 2011" coverage next week, including updates on particularly badass bands like Lolita Black, Prayers for Atheists, and Broadcaster.
