Contradictory Name, Decisive Music: Positive No Debuts


Among the albums I’m most excited about this year is Via Florum, the debut from Richmond, Virginia’s Positive No. These five songs head more into the “cathartic post-punk” territory: melodic in places, emotionally exhausting in others. I’ve long been a fan of vocalist Tracy Wilson, ever since her days in Dahlia Seed; I spoke with her in 2009 around the release of her long-in-the-works solo project Ringfinger. Positive No consists of musicians who know their style well, and are able to take it in a panoply of interesting directions. Feel like listening to a song? You can do that below.

You can hear the whole thing here; the 12″ version is coming soon.
