- These Dark Roots of Heaven by Skeleton Birds and The Number of God
8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 02 December 2010
Skeleton Birds and the Number of God is a new project from Volcano The Bear founder Nick Mott. Apparently he 'resigned' from Volcano The Bear with the intention of doing pretty much the same esoteric stuff he did before, which is a bit odd. 'These Dark Roots of Heaven' was recorded in various outdoor locations including an abandoned quarry and a couple of farmhouses which isn't apparent on first listen but may be adding something to the atmosphere of these dark drones. Primarily constructed from manipulated and distorted vocals (that sound very much like a theremin), acoustic instruments (mainly violins and trumpets so far) plus environmental and found sounds are punctuated by the occasional abstract beat or sample. Things start out pretty obscure and vocal driven but as the record develops we are treated to brief jams and consistent grooves albeit all wrapped up in ghostly vocal madness. It's a quirky record this but one that I'm sure will satisfy many a listener, Volcano The Bear fans and beyond.
