already dead 2016, cs edition of 100, lp edition of 200

"a slow-burning but hard-hitting force to be reckoned with, strings writhe and screech like spectres wandering the night, ethereal guitar with cello and violin make for some unsettling soundscapes, meditative drumming leaves the rest of the band their sonic space without leaving anything out, plaintive croons feel drawn from the pages of a Cormac Mccarthy novel while the music has a cinematic quality and undeniably western twang to it. A great record for the shifting of seasons and somber reflection." - ALREADY DEAD

SONGS: OHIA reincarnate, reverent to DIDN'T IT RAIN and MAGNOLIA ELECTRIC CO, powered by some of the darker energy manifested on the last side of TRIALS & ERRORS, injected with a regimented dose of BRY WEBB's loner cool, supplemented by some sunny side down string accompaniment with a brooding intensity bubbling beneath the surface, at times boiling over into a alt country post rock amalgam maybe like WOODEN WAND by way of P.W. ELVERUM & SUN LTD or some such, echoing outsider vibes channeled by TUCKER THEODORE, JAKOB OLAUSSON and SPENCER DOBBS
