The English dark-blues duo Black Severn released the LP Wild Interior earlier in the month.
The seven track, approximately thirty five minutes, album (available on bandcamp) holds the listener in a vice-like grip through its duration as the combinations of guitar and percussion, like fencers, duel with each other giving the compositions a constant sense of thrusts and parries with the softly measured vocal providing an absorbing counter-weight.
The dour countenance of the soundtrack never looses intrigue as within the compositions, which run from under one minute to over eight, are in constant flux, with each offering something quite different, as Black Severn cast a wary eye on events, reflecting in their output the tumult of world affairs.
My apologies that this article is late, as I was originally alerted to Wild Interior, back in March. My selection on the LP is the penultimate track Dustwun.
