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”.
I appreciate that people generally make the pilgrimage TO Ireland, but this was one divine intervention I was not going to miss for anything…
Two years in the making and the day finally arrives for the official unveiling of the debut album by Sonic Jesus – ‘Neither Virtue Nor Anger’. (Full LP Review to follow).
In a repeat of last year’s Fuzz Club Stage billing at Eindhoven Psych Lab, Sonic Jesus and The Underground Youth take The Waiting Room by storm, for this Bad Vibrations & Fuzz Club Records presentation.
