Rites Of Uncovering

(8tx, 47'45" - Thrill Jockey 'o7)

From Baltimore, USA, second album and debut on Thrill Jockey, - dragging sedated percussions, down-tuned guitars sometimes turning fuzzy and distorted, - and mite warm mournful male vocals on the southern soul coordinates of 16 Horsepower, early Neil Young or Palace's blues (actually, singer/gtrst Dave Heumann has performed with Will Oldham's Bonnie Prince Billy). Rites Of Uncovering's strenght is impressive as the release was already an old classic. - Call it folk rock (Tonight's Jeweli), alt-country Music (hypnotic Sleep Of Shiloam), - abeilt there's even more, - listen to the psychedelic long guitar solo digression of The Rise, - nearly hard-rock, - a crazy lysergic time-travel trip into 7o's, a threefolded room bumping from an intimate quasi religious chant into a drugged hangover and viceversa. Music for lonesome whiskered people, - just kidding, - the Rites Of Uncovering are also to be meant as rites to touch ecstasy (cf. the mesmerizing opening track Signposts And Instruments), through folk-centric triumphs.
Da Baltimora, USA, secondo album e debutto su Thrill Jockey, - batterie trascinate e sedate, chitarre in chiave bassa a volte viranti nel fuzz amplificato e distorto, - e poi un cantato caldo e luttuoso da anima del sud sulle coordinate dei blues di 16 Horsepower, un giovane Neil Young o Palace (tra l'altro, il cantante chitarrista Dave Heumann ha anche suonato con Will Oldham in età Bonnie Prince Billy). Rites Of Uncovering ha una forza impressionante che quasi lo fa passare come fosse già un classico. - Chiamatelo folk rock (Tonight's Jeweli), alt-country Music (l'ipnotica Sleep Of Shiloam), - ma c'è anche di più, - basta ascoltare lo psichedelico lungo assolo di chitarra di The Rise, - digressivo, quasi hard-rock, un pazzo trip viaggio nel tempo, negli anni 7o, - una stanza a tre vani che Vi fa saltare da un'intima intonazione quasi religiosa ad una sbornia drogta e viceversa. - Musica per tristi barbuti, - scherzo, - i Rites Of Uncovering sono anche da essere intesi come riti per toccare l'estasi (cfr. la mesmerica prima traccia Signposts And Instruments), attraverso trionfi folk-centrici. - Ps. A Novembre sono in tour in italia, info: wakeupandream.

not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
