The US melancholic-rock quartet Saint Augustine release the LP Lost Two Days on the 1st of June.
Unhurried tracks float in to the room on the wings of reverberating guitar chords, which seem to melt the steel in the strings, while bass and percussion weigh the tracks with their sadness which is further compounded through the emotionally laden vocal.
Whilst reaching for a handkerchief to dry the eyes the listener also feels a catharsis through the drifting layers of sound.
The ten track album (available on bandcamp) is well worth adding to the collection as the players demonstrate their ability to write and deliver emotionally charged music. My selection from the release is the third Right Way Down.
