I am not fond of the latest music categories; they confuse me with their multi-hyphenated, trying-to-sound-cool-using-obscure-words titles.
As a result, I have learned to ignore them cause I would hate to miss out on hearing amazing new music like HARM WÜLF’s (G. Hirsch of Blacklisted) sophomore release HIJRAH from Deathwish Inc. because I felt “meh” about the category label.
This album is perfect for those times when sugary pop sweetness just won’t do.
…Hijrah is inspired by a range of artists from the tranquil resonance of Low, to the rhythmic acoustic strumming of Strength Through Joy, the ascending power of Angels Of Light, even calling to the insular/grotesque Americana of Cormac McCarthy and Flannery O’Connor, etc…
You can listen to it here on Bandcamp Daily before its August 26th release!
