Wooden Wand and the Vanishing Voice
Kill Rock Stars
There's a very strong call for truth on this album. And they call you out. They do it in a way that only one person I know can do. In fact, it is because of that person that I can even like this sound. Before our meeting, I would have likely skipped this over as some kind of pretentious crap. But that was when I was more wont to mistake true (and good) weirdness for pretense.
A friend that just isn't so, A friend that just isn't true...
Didn't it Rain?, Don't Love the Liar, Hey Pig! He Stole My Sound, Sun Sets on Clarion, Dread Effigy, Dead End Days With Ceasar, and Genesis Joplin round out the rest of this ultra-weird and damn fine record.
Yes, truth. And don't love the liar. Although, friends, we are all liars.
