There is music that can exist in the background and there is music that requires your entire attention. Â You aren’t going to listen to a group like Mammifer while doing the dishes. Â Vocalist Faith Coloccia and her husband, Aaron Turner (formerly of Isis), have assembled a sound that far exceeds their numbers, even without the presence of a drummer.
Flower of the FieldÂ sets such a beautifully stark and sinister tone, it’s easy to overlook its simplicity. Â The song consists of one guitar playing two notes back and forth, but it slowly magnifies its presence and distortsÂ until it’s shrieking at the top of its lungs. Â That vicious presence, married with Faith Coloccia’sÂ celestial vocal apparition, has concoctedÂ one of the most powerful tracks I’ve heard all year. Â Listen below, andÂ hear another tune off the E.P. after the ‘buy’ link.
