Music I Liked And Didn't - 1/10/07
HOLY SONS: My Only Warm Coals 10" (Morc Records) - I was impressed enough by the “Decline Of The West” LP that I scored and reviewed last week, that I tracked down this earlier 10" release from Emil Amos', Holy Sons. The material on this release is very similar to that on the “Decline Of The West” LP, containing another 12 tracks of murky (perhaps, even made more so by being cut direct to disc on the King Records Worldwide lathe!), lo-fi, bedroom pop and rock. In fact, I'd have to say that I actually like this 10" a little better than the LP, as it seems to be a little more conceptually focused, with darker lyrical content and more fucked-up samples of Evangelists. Very cool!
