Luke Roberts Drifts Out With The Thrills
Thrill Jockey really hit the stellar releases into hyperdrive this year, and with Luke Roberts' Big Bells And Dime Songs, an understated gem that in its poetic lyricism evokes hope and frivolity, the label's sublime record remains indelibly intact. The label itself says the record is about "running, stumbling, falling, crashing, crying, spitting, fighting, sleeping, dancing, healing, bruising, the butterfly, crawling, creeping, building, flying, fording, gargling, just starting out, homecoming, claiming, calling, bridges, tunnels, planets, and the sun and money." Exhaustive. Like life flashing before one's eyes - yet it's a epiphanous experience without the sense of losing out or regretting anything. Mr Roberts, you have tapped into something that is subliminal, primal, and oh so beautiful - thank you.
Big Bells And Dime Songs is available now - grab it from the source.
