Songs: The Sin Eaters + Spiro Agnew + Idol's Eye
Recorded at Double Double Land, March 8, 2016.
Sort of like a grad seminar in advanced songshredology, this band unites drummer Chris Corsano with guitarists Ben Chasny (Six Organs of Admittance) and Richard Bishop (Sun City Girls) in a superpower trio that was on the road supporting their third album The Heretic's Bargain. What this is is a simple thing done quite fucking well, the intricate interplay unleashed so casually that you might miss its technical excellence while your knees are buckling from the delivery. Equally identifiable as sea shanties, speed-psych-raga and surf jazz, there was an incredible amount packed into their near-hour on stage.
