On experiencing ‘It’s time to hear’ for the first time, the warm embrace of it’s sweeping grandeur and haunting imagery had me gladly and willingly sealing my “Faustian Pact” with Sonic Jesus.
‘Neither Virtue Nor Anger’ by Sonic Jesus, is perhaps 2015’s most eagerly anticipated debut LP, certainly for those fortunate souls who take their music with more than just a pinch of gravitas.
Few releases have me contemplating the juxtaposition of Platonist preponderance over Aristotle’s ‘Ethica Nicomachea’, combined with Blake’s adherence that “there is no suffering except in the eyes of the uninformed”, positing “desire as an indication of man’s infinite nature”, and “that thought be linked to the vast imagination rather than a limited perception”.
It all started on July 30th 2014.
I just happened to be on facebook and noticed that Marco Baldassari from Sonic Jesus had ‘liked’ The Gluts.
Knowing that Marco has impeccable taste in music, it piqued my curiosity – so I followed the clicks to Bandcamp, found The Gluts’ debut LP ‘Warsaw’, and the opening crescendo of chords on the first track ‘Rag Doll’ did the rest.
Every now and again, a band comes along with all the right ingredients, coupled with that elusive formula for producing immediate goosebumps – The Gluts are one of those bands.
The Gluts describe themselves as, ‘Excess, surplus, too much, saturation, overkill, overload… they are all synonymous of GLUT. Too much of good things, in slang. This is THE GLUTS, a powerful overloaded psychedelic rock. Play to believe. But play it LOUD.’ I could not agree more.
