Album Review

Sex Church – “Somnambulist” – [Instant Pleasure]

abacus   11/23/2012   12-inch, A Library

Death rock disciples out of Vancouver, BC have only one thing to say about their music, it rains a lot in Vancouver. This band has previous releases on Load, Hozac and Sweet Rot. The first track starts off with some fast-moving sludge like a massive mudslide. Hurled vocals are accentuated by the bends and screams of guitar with the bass/drums locked together, tumbling into a belligerently drunken daze. The 2nd track gives a more upbeat, poppy tune, almost surf-like, but with the same distant vocals, spoken this time with a little more of an inside voice. The track is slowly drowned out in the grey fog of layered guitar noise as the song progresses. The B side is the true highlight, full of plodding muck that reeks of skronk and filth. So dirty it makes me sick to the stomach like riding in a storm damaged ship, sinking as it lurches along. Beautiful slimy rock and roll!
