Shipping News – “Very Soon, and in Pleasant Co. ” – [Quarterstick Records]

Lousville sluggers, scions of Rodan and cross
connected to a slew of bands, including June
of 44 and Rachels. Shipping News stack another
CD on the Tower of Dour. Slow songs, not the
frozen wonder of Low, nor the sludgy tectonics
of Earth neither, more malaised meanderings. At
times a tad long in the guitar solo tooth
for me, but always blanketed in big bassy
soundsheets. Music to drag your heels *and* the
lake by. Sonic scrounging, a couple of times
they get a sort of pulling slack strings across
the pickups sound. “Quiet Victories” and
“Actual Blood” are my highlights for feeling
low here. -Thurston Hunger
