Widow City by The Fiery Furnaces

8/10 Ant 11 October 2007
Ant here kicking off my bit with a CD from Fiery Furnaces. 'Widow City' was recorded in Chicago by John "Tortoise" Mcentire. I'd love to have a word for something I was well known for inserted between my first and last name like that. Sadly my life isn't all that exciting sp it would probably be something like Anthony "Sleep" Locke. It's pretty unconventional in its arrangements this records. In fact it shifts all over the place from 60's pop into weird wobbly rock bits with some cool volume changes and good old stop start dynamics which are almost operatic. A whole barrage of instruments including woodwind, harps, keyboards, tape loops etc. The brother/ sister duo are talented songwriters, no doubt. You just get the feeling that a great deal of passion, imagination and creative energy has gone into making it. This is their first non Rough Trade album and is out on Thrill Jockey.
