"dreamin' every night of you, shakin' at the sight of you... And you dug me out of this shallow grave,
with your Swiss Army knife, And only you could revive me..."
Personal favorites include "Lay Down in the Tall Grass" and "I Get Low"
You won't be able to get this album out of your head.
In its own alternative world. Strange and beautiful.
This is an album that can require a certain mindset to get into, certainly an open mind, but it is a rewardingly unique listening experience. The themes of spirits, religion, and death hang heavily over the languid, organ-driven tracks, which never gather any kind of speed, though "We'll Find Out" rises up from the muck into a nigh-spiritual chorus of voices. "Lay Down in the Tall Grass" could've been the dark, brooding theme to "True Blood", and "I Get Low" sounds like the blues as sung by the most dejected person on the earth, lead singer Taylor Kirk crooning, "I get low, low, low, low/On my own."
What's most impressive about this eponymous album is the way band manages to formulate their sound, a muted swamp-blues and folk fusion. A lonely organ dialsup the creep factor, Kirk's plaintive, ghostly vocals appearing out of the mist, the subdued strum of a guitar drifting in from nowhere. This album marries the hot and sticky with the cold and clammy, and all throughout, Kirk drives the album forward with the delivery of an alligator drifting in the water, definitely moving forawrd, not in any apparent hurry. The end result is an album that is both surprisingly charming and a little creepy, like a ghost story that isn't real but gives you shivers just the same.Read more ›
At first it struck me as being influenced by the early NYC Punk/No Wave stuff, like Suicide, which I'm a big fan of.
The rest of the album strikes me as more of a dark folk sort of thing though, a bit like maybe Castanets or Jana Hunter.
It's an interesting listen.
that evokes a sense of disaster and personal ruin. Spooky, hypnotic and strange.
If Chris Isaak went to hell after his first two albums, met up with David Lynch
for a drink and a puff of hobbit-tobacco, listening to a Leonard Cohen record
in the devils living room, he might have ended up sounding like Taylor Kirk!
The music is a combination of folk, blues and country, with Kirk's rich croon and
dark, sometimes surreal lyrics at the centre of attention. Call it whatever you
want; Folk Noir, Twisted Americana or Gothic Rockabilly Blues, it doesn't matter,
there is a restrained beauty and unsettling atmosphere to most of the songs and
it's easy to understand why a lot of people tagged this cinematic and well-suited
to soundtrack True Blood or a Lynch movie.
Standouts: "Demon Host", "Lay Down In The Tall Grass" and "I Get Low".
In addition, the live recordings on the bonus disc are also very good,
with different arrangements from the ones on the album.
I heard the song "Magic Arrow" on an episode of "Breaking Bad" and I kept humming the tune for days. That is what I like and expect for popular music, something that is interesting, newish and fresh. It's good, so I got it. It seems very modal and simplistic, but very rhythmic ... anyway, who knows or can explain ... it's a cool song, I just like it.
