Saint James Society - BABAYLON RISING 12 inch

$28.00 (AUD)


Austin, TX psych rock gang THE SAINT JAMES SOCIETY plays

electrifying rock music that brilliantly connects the dots

between dark ‘60s blues-based garage rock and early ‘80s post

punk resulting in a hypnotically powerful sound the fabulous

four-piece calls "Pentecostal Desert Glam." TSJS's full length

debut – the mystically-titled Bab(a/y)lon Rising – pulses

through the speakers like punk rock gypsies on a rampage,

perfectly capturing the band's apocalyptic nomad-rock as it

drips with dark fuzz and acid drone that will surely find favor

with restless sinners everywhere. Equal parts style and sound,

THE SAINT JAMES SOCIETY blends sex, rebellion and

mysticism with a fascination for western mystic traditions and

secret societies, creating modern music that aims to awaken

something deep and wonderfully dangerous within the

listener. It has been said that "The Saint James Society sounds

as good as any band on the planet at full volume," a point to

which the band's bustling fan network of artists, writers,

musicians, filmmakers, photographers, creeps and thieves

would most assuredly agree. When the heavy swagger of

vocalist/bassist Brandon Burkart and golden guitars of

Dahveed Dubois align with the band's heavy-footed rhythms,

ticking-time-bomb beat and stunning twin vocal tandem of

rebel queens Elza Burkart and Candice Bertalan, the resulting

musical statement mainlines the thrill of defiance straight to

the listener's heart. Fire up Bab(a/y)lon Rising and find out for

yourself what the buzz is all about; you just might discover

your new favorite band.
