Current 93 – “Honeysuckle Aeons” – [Coptic Cat]

With over 20 albums under their wing, Current 93′s David Tibet (aka David Michael Bunting) can still find material to orate about. The album Honeysuckle Aeons is mostly apocalyptic folk, braised with some dark experimental and psychedelic phrasing. This record seems mostly influenced by Tibet’s new found love of Christianity and its origins which can sometimes be depressing and enlightening at the same time. This new love affair is quite a far stretch from some of this band’s earlier seductions by the mystic Aleister Crowley, but nothing like the graceful strokes of Baby Dee on the keys to save your soul on tracks like “Jasmine” and “Pomegranate”. Or enjoy the theramin shining on songs “Moon” and “Honeysuckle” featured on this totally guitarless album. Not as heavy or as dark as some of Currrent 93′s earlier stuff, but still filled with incantations and battles between good and evil combined with orchestral textures and delicate arrangements. A nice addition to the KFJC library and maybe a nice addition to yours.
