All Them Witches
Dying Surfer Meets His Maker
New West Records
creating filmic landscapes rendered by guitars, keys & drums, the nashville 4-piece's heavy, rocky, doomy, bluesy, psychy sound constantly shifts, making them impossible to pin down & this album indefineable, thrilling & enthralling.
whilst listening to the album repeatedly, various residents have cited everyone from dan auerbach/the black keys, arctic monkeys, trail of the dead, qotsa, robbie robertson & black mountain. One song opens onto another as it unfolds into a labyrinthine, head-expanding ride - it's a real slow burner. there is precision & weight in every swell & breakdown, every riff & groove. The narratives are often unspoken, sourcing musical touchstones from across the States, offering an almost cinematic experience wrapped up in their propulsive rhythms & subtly funky anthems. "There is no minute-to-minute stretch at which 'Dying Surfer Meets His Maker' isn’t a joy...but the truly affecting experience is the record taken in its entirety" - the obelisk.
Ian recommends: "Dying surfer meets his maker combines spacey lyricism, tripped-out post-psych guitars, and booming stoner rock drums. Worth shouting out that it has easily the best album artwork of the year so far"
