Lord Willing – Loneliness Is The Hardest Drug – Audio

The US blues-rock creator Justin Long in the guise of Lord Willing will be releasing the LP Are You Happy? on the 31st of May.

Lord Willing

From the forthcoming album – Loneliness Is The Hardest Drug, which was itself released as a stand alone single earlier this month, stakes a decent marker for the LP.

A just over three minutes track that is fused with R&B, Blues and thumping rock, which finds the listener stamping in time with the bulging drum kit that slices through the speakers. A well conceived piece of music which lifts even the dourest mood to a sense of well-being and rather than downing whisky to numb despondency the audience raises a glass in cheerful disposition.

The fact that Justin is an experienced musician, albeit that Lord Willing is a new project, is evidenced in the self-assured songwriting and delivery.

Word arrives of a follow-up single coming out on the 17th of March – Green Doesn’t Look Good On You which will provide a further signpost as to what to expect from Are You Happy? in May.

In their latest track – Battered Fish – the listener is shrouded by an industrial apocalypse of menacing bass and drum, while half-spoken lyric impresses the sense of foreboding into the bone marrow as guitars and electronics reverberate and echo from the walls in a just over six minute track that can, with some pleasure, bear immediate replay.

THE WAIT

Recently revealed were the only four tracks around – packaged as the EP Ascent (available on bandcamp).

THE WAIT deliver music that, counter to likely expectation by regular readers when it comes to suggested volume, needs to be turned down as quietly as your ears can muster soundwaves, with lights dimmed, to enjoy fully the weaving somnambulism that threads across the room in haunting graces and uneasy footstep, as the duo proffer material of disturbing nightmares and restful deep REM.

My selection of the tracks thus far around is the title piece of the EP – Ascent.
