It’s been out a couple months, through A389 Recordings, and I'm a big fan. It hits all the requisite wall of noise blanketing your ears goodness – a silky opening in ‘The Dives (Lazarus In Ashes)’ bleeds into a more explosive title track – but the moment that gets me is the singular track on the B-side, ‘The Rites Of Love And Death’. It’s a gentle, languid track that drifts away, an ethereal beauty that benefits from the acoustics and gentle vocals, almost like a cast-off from The Virgin Suicides soundtrack. It may seem a strange way to finish what has been a physical suite of music, but it fares incredibly well, the gentle coda to the despair that takes place beforehand.
