|Description from tinhorn planet:|
|'montgomery blue ash' is the new, free 4-song EP from the gifted children.
written and almost entirely recorded in a single day by jeff suszczynski and bill trautman in gastonia, north carolina, it sounds unmistakably like
the gifted children yet different from anything they've done so far.|
in addition to binding themselves to write the songs from scratch in a single day, they also forced themselves to delete the first track recorded for each song. so throughout the brief but richly varied EP, you can hear the band stepping out of their normal comfort zone: lead-off track 'face to face with constellations' is angular indie rock with electronic and funk touches, 'otolith angels' plays like a nihilist hymn with a stein-waving group vocal, 'disciples of languor' mixes doom rock with a dark dance beat to great effect, and the closing title track adds and subtracts layers of instrumentation under a simple vocal mantra.
the digital download, available on april 12, will be free for a limited time, with a physical copy containing complete artwork and liner notes available for sale in early may.
