For nearly a minute, the newest single from Wished Bone toys with you; you get this noisy experimental guitar play, draped discordantly atop a steady beat. Then all of a sudden its gone, the curtain raises and you’ve got Ashley Rhodus’ soothing voice coolly whispering through your speakers. Guitar sound has a much more organic feel to it, but also some natural propulsion, working with the drum to provide the song’s momentum. A faint hint of the noisy opening lurks in the background as the song fades out, but I promise you’re not likely to find a more comforting song today. Sap Season will be out next Friday!
It looks like our good friend Tom over at GFP is jumping full on into his new record label, Human Noise Recording; his newest release from Wished Bone is another great effort you’ll want to add to your collection. There’s something incredibly intoxicating in the new LP, Cellar Belly. It almost feels like the group are being playful, as if they want you to have fun with their brand of pop. But, in saying that, there’s also a natural foreboding that emanates from the subject matter and emotional pull. I’ve been stuck spinning “Yellowstoned” quite a bit today…but then again, I’m a sucker for anything Yellowstone. Go on and stream the release below, with a physical copy coming out at the end of the month.
