Transgender Dysphoria Blues is the sixth studio album by punk band Against Me!. The album was released on January 21, 2014 by Total Treble Music and Xtra Mile Recordings.
On their sixth album Transgender Dysphoria Blues, Laura Jane Grace and Against Me! draw a hard line between identity and ideology. Produced by Grace and put out on her own label Total Treble, the band splits the difference from old and new into a compact sound that skews more Sex Pistols than Foo Fighters. It’s been easy to disagree about the fluid and often conflicting ideology of Against Me! over the years. They were born to the Gainesville, Fl. scene as anarcho-punks, wearing black and fully DIY; NOFX's Fat Mike offered the band some money and off they went to his Fat Wreck label, a farm league for the majors where bands could slug Bro Hymns to the kids at Warped Tour. Then Sire offered them even more money so they went up to a major, effectively jettisoning any remaining Reinventing Axl Rose ideologues.
Against Me! delivers one the year’s most honest and captivating albums. On their latest album, Against Me! tackles difficult subject that isn’t exactly your everyday family conversation piece. Front woman Laura Jane Grace takes rock music where it has never went before – into the mind of a transgendered person. Laura Jane Grace was formerly Tom Gabel before making the transformation. The title is bold enough to both arouse curiosity and alienate the more conservative. Regardless where one stands, as an album, Transgender Dysphoria Blues is magnificent.
Transgender Dysphoria Blues Lyrics. Lyrics to the Full Album on one page). Transgender Dysphoria Blues. Drinking With The Jocks. Osama Bin Laden As The Crucified Christ. Black Me Out. Your tells are so obvious, shoulders too broad for a girl. It keeps you reminded, helps you remember where you come from. You want them to notice, the ragged ends of your summer dress. You want them to see you like they see every other girl. They just see a faggot.
Album: Transgender Dysphoria Blues (2014). Get the Sheet Music License This Song. songfacts ®. Against Me!'s sixth album deals with its frontwoman's transition from Tom Gabel to Laura Jane Grace. The vocalist built her own studio in an abandoned Florida post office to record the record, which was released on Grace's new label, Total Treble Music. Speaking with NME, the singer spoke about being on the road for a year and a half and recording the new album three times to get it just right.
I’ve been working for Stereogum for something like two and a half years now, writing literally thousands of blog posts, and I’ll stand by nearly every one of them. But there’s one towering exception. The post is still here, if you’re morbidly curious. I don’t know what the fuck I was thinking beyond the.
Originally, Grace conceived the project as a concept album about a transsexual prostitute, but during the record's earliest stages, Grace revealed first to her band and then to the world at large (via a 2012 article in Rolling Stone) that she herself was a transgender woman.
