Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy & Matt Sweeney – My Home is the Sea

serpentwithfeet – blisters

serpentwithfeet, alias of Josiah Wise, is set to take the discerning music fan’s world by veritable cyclone. Electronic gospel fused with dark atmospheric strings and layered vocals meld into a beautiful listening experience.

Huge swells of building tension are scattered throughout the almost seven minute track, propping up the vulnerable vocals and evoking a dangerously blissful operatic love letter to the universe.

Slow, driving hand claps interrupted by heavenly harp and repetitions of “The darkness of the leaves has come. Forgiveness has not…” hint at a post-apocalyptic nuclear wasteland forged by small-mindedness. A true parallel of a broken relationship with the broken world pervading in today’s climate of unrest.

serpentwithfeet’s debut EP is release September 2nd via Tri Angle Records.

Sunday Streamers: #24

Sunday Streamers will bring a carefully curated list of tracks to see you through the day of rest. New, old, anything goes.

Leonard Cohen – The Stranger Song

Dwight Twilley Band – Looking for the Magic

Foals – What Went Down

White Fence – Sandra (When the Earth Dies)

Led Zeppelin – The Crunge

Emma Ruth Rundle – Marked For Death

LA songwriter Emma Ruth Rundle is known under many guises – Marriages, perhaps her most well-known offering, creates haunting soundscapes deeply resonant with the ethereal realm.

Alone, Emma bypasses the ethereal for the utterly devastating truth of the present moment. The stark reality of an emotional breakdown of a relationship echoed plainly in her clean vocals, unprotected by echo based effects or reverb.

The particularly piquant home truths that are laid bare in ‘Marked for Death’ are enhanced with muted acoustic and sliding guitars. And the emergence of a cello that soars underneath perpetuates a strong nostalgia, hinting at a bygone time lost to the clutches of the “real world”.

Marked for Death is a strong debut single from Emma’s third solo offering.

The album Marked For Death is out September 30th and is available for pre-order here.
