Grain Sparrow I think of Pink Floyd's Division Bell as *the* electric guitar record of the 1990s, and of the Chili Peppers' Stadium Arcadium as the equivalent in the 2000s. As for the 2010s, look no further. Hearing Unlikely Mothers in full is like riding clouds of fire from mountaintop to mountaintop. My favorite album by my favorite band. Favorite track: A Watery Down II.

cephalopoid That disonnance, the sweet dread, the way it feels like I'm dragging my feet through existential marshes that suck me down until I drown. It just really scratches that surreal itch, really well. Favorite track: Endless Echo.

Originally Released on Blackest Rainbow Records 2xLP (Red and Red and White Swirl)

Writing Below by Blackest Rainbow:

Original Brand new double LP from the duo of Caleb Mulkerin and Colleen Kinsella, who also play in Cerberus Shoal and Fire On Fire. The duo also performed on Michael Gira's Swans LP, The Seer in 2012. Based out of Portland, Maine, Big Blood has dropped a ton of stunning self released CDs and cassettes since 2006 as well as some fantastic vinyl releases for Time-Lag, Feeding Tube, Phase and Immune.
Big Blood's sound is rooted in folk and prime 60s / 70s garage pscyh. This new double LP sees them focus more the electric side of things than on some previous releases with the addition of drummer, Shon. The record was recorded after Colleen spent a lot of time listening to Sabbath, Zepp and Dead Moon, so it definitely has a heavier vibe than some of their past releases.
The gatefold sleeve features artwork by Colleen, 'Unlikely Mothers' refers to Colleen's mother (pictured on the inside) and Colleen's aunt (pictured on the outside), both were nuns. Her aunt stayed a nun and colleen's mom left (obviously) during Vatican II. The two images for the sleeve are from an ongoing series about women who buck common notions of who are the mothers in our lives.
Pressed on 180 gram virgin vinyl, 150 copies pressed on opaque red and white swirl, and 250 on transparent red. Includes download code.
