Evening Fires / Holy Ghost Explosion
by Evening Fires
Evening Fires ’ ninth release was recorded fall 2009 in the hay-filled cathedral ambiance of a big old 1920s barn up in the hills of Central PA (horses present though not audible), and it documents a gtr/bs/drms/synths/violin lineup of the group working out some ceremonial performance themes, laying back and letting the spirit flow: Floating rustic space rock channeled into a sonic revival jamboree – testifying on the power of electricity, praise for the apple trees up on the hill, moments of amplified introspection, and plenty of good old sonic snake handling. And it’s all played live to 2-track stereo, for that authentic “field recordings captured by an early-21st Century folklorist searching for lost strains of North Appalachian Psychedelic Rock music” vibe that just can’t be found in the domesticated confines of yer proper-type recording studios. Six tracks, 54 minutes.
