♯new ♯2021checklist ♯indierock ♯alternative ♯indiepop ♯indiepoprock ♯altrock ♯thekillers ♯synthpop 'Pressure Machine' previously addressing the rural-despair and small-town tragedies, The Killers commit the entire LP to the spiritually-endorsed poverty, rampant opiate crisis, and hundreds of other quiet desperations. With documentary-like sound clips, the themes are underlined twice over (there's also a version without them). Thematically, the train metaphor thundering through town, as the bringer of commerce & mode for hopeless teen suicide-- is unstoppable and seemingly an eternal fixture. It's heavy ♯heartlandrock that never veers too far into melodrama-- the LP takes on the serious issues with a genuine understanding.
