New Music: Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra - Take Away These Early Grave Blues
Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra is an offshoot of Godspeed You Black Emperor! so there is a good chance they may be nominated for the Polaris music prize later this year. If that's the case don't count on them showing up for the ceremony, just like last year. If the songs on their forthcoming new album Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light On Everything is anything like their new single "Take Away These Early Grave Blues" they are a lock for a nomination. Unlike, Godspeed these guys have actual lyrics and there is no post rock here, just pure loud as hell proto-punk. Listen below:
The new album is out January 24 via Constellation Records.
