Next up on the Awful Bliss rollercoaster is a CD by Holy Sons called Decline of The West which is an interesting thing. For starters there’s a Sebadoh cover and a Daniel Johnston/ Jad Fair cover… usually a good sign. I’ve no idea how to describe this one. Initially I thought a stripped down Beta Band for some of the tracks and then I thought the slackerish end of Beck… Then I listened to 4 more songs and still had no idea but I was quite happy just listening and not really thinking of comparisons (which is all we do here)…. Anyway this quote from the label sums things up perfectly I think

”The record's production takes Holy Sons' minimalist avant-folk sound and journeys through formats as varied as dub, church-hymn, slow-jam, tape-collage and paranoid beats over-run by obtuse banjo-sitar runs...” Well worth checking out!
