Kylesa - Spiral Shadow 12"
Out of Stock
This Savannah, GA-based hard rock band has finally painted its masterpiece on this, its fifth full-length. Kylesa's use of two drummers (a practice that began on 2006's Time Will Fuse Its Worth) has really paid off on this disc, adding rhythmic intricacy without devolving into proggy abstraction or wallowing in Melvins-like thudding. The melodic aspect of their sound is what's changed the most on Spiral Shadow, though; the songs are more psychedelic than ever, with guitarist/vocalists Phillip Cope and Laura Pleasants shouting and crooning back and forth at each other in a call-and-response style that sometimes sounds like an argument, and other times like a ritual.
