I’d been pluggin Blackmilk in the lead up to the release of their record In Lak’ech and I’m happy to say it’s out and sounds very good. ‘The Prospector’ is their new single and it’s a complete departure to what we have heard earlier. This one is a stripped-back tune with all focus on the vocal and stark narrative accompanied by backing harmony and select violin builds for extra drama. A good range from a very accomplished record by the Perth yocals. In Lak’ech is a deep rocking record with an amazing period sound that combines the best of Australian country story-telling with psychedelia and Tumbleweed like, stoner guitar drifts. Def worth hearing.
