‘I Don’t Care’
It’s difficult to write a release off as ‘sexy’ when there’s a fetching mug of Freud staring back at you from the cover. Anyway, The Go Roll Your Bones have snatched the primal rib from Kiss Reid’s side and grinded it down to make their morning coffee. It’s no surprise that Wade Keirghan who’s done duties for The Scare and Wolf & Cub was behind the mixing wheel for this one. Nevertheless, I’m just happy to welcome back some decent psych-prog back to the yard.
First track ‘Fathers’ kicks off thrusting bass-in-your-face and heavy petting vocalesque. ‘I Don’t Care’ wails ‘I’ve been used as a dishrag, used as a mop’, but for all that bluesy lamenting, it’s about as saccharine as a murder ballad. This EP smells like twelve minutes of bourbon stained velvet carpet and last night’s ashtray. A good dose of R ‘n’ R, with dare I say the word, SWAG. Give this a listen.
