Old Time Relijun
Lost Light (KLP159)
Like, whoever heard of an accessible Old Time Relijun record? Well, here it is. The latest incarnation of a band that keeps re-inventing itself, while remaining true to their axis of emotional divinity. The beauty lies deeply ingrained in a jubilant outpouring of thunderclouds and crowns of thorns and tumbling bags of bones. The addition of drummer Rives Elliot to the kettle containing Arrington de Dionyso (guitar, voice and woodwinds) and Aaron Hartman (double bass) provides the music of Old Time Relijun with a resounding thud heard across the dance floor.
This is a band of musicians who create, improvise and communicate. Sure, the noise and confusion of previous Old Time Relijun outings are maintained here, but the clarity of Lost Light lifts it through the skylight of destruction to a world you've never visited before. Judge it deep, thick, luscious, feral; there are still no rules to the instinctual sounds of Old Time Relijun, it's an unforced force for inner peace through catharsis.
