Wise Blood- Losing my Mind (Live)

I don't really know how I slept on this for so long, but NYCtaper has the audio from Wise Blood's opening set for Wu Lyf at Glasslands last Friday night. If you didn't hear any of the post SXSW hype, I'll sum it up for you: Apparently he's an entirely different beast live. Straight up rapping/yelling replace the usual falsetto chants and live drums help add to the urgency. Wise Blood thrives on paradox, and his live show just adds another dimension. To be honest, its almost reminiscent of Nu Metal, but the divide between what we've heard from '+' and Laufman's live presence can keep even the largest skeptics fascinated.
Check out a new song we've only heard in live form below and grab the whole set (including Solo 4 Claire featuring Wu Lyf's singer!) here.
