White Hills- Splintered Metal Sky (God Unknown Records)
What can I say??? White Hills are an ever evolving band and now what seems to be a permanent duo. In many ways this album is like the last one but it mixes in a bit more of the experimental early side of the band. A lot of political commentary about the state of the world and some interest guests from film maker Jim Jarmusch to the bass player/singer in Primal Scream. While, I prefer the space and psychedelic rock versions of White Hills, I really dig the evolution and path the band have taken but this is far from an easy listening experience, very edge, tense, in your face at times, powerful and controversial. Check it out!!!
