Racebannon - In The Grips Of The Light album
I proudly advocate that the more emotionally harrowing an album, the deeper the meaning. In the Grips of the Light is laden with recurring motifs of despondence, which is to say that its sentiments hit home, for me. Now, I had meant that to be more or less a statement as to how different they are from other bands within the genre. In summation, Racebannon are just plain ing weird. There seems to be enough of everything here to please everyone, even if it's to a minimal extent. In the Grips of the Light is convoluted and emits an assault on the senses, in a good way, for those who relate.
Fortunately, Racebannon never loses intensity no matter how long or complicated the music becomes. Even the shorter songs like "Flip n' Fuck" or "Fuck Yr Obvious Words" transition from screaming thrash to effect-stricken outros, but the opening sections are strong enough to keep the rest of the song from wandering.
After a handful of vinyl releases with various recording qualities, this album has by far the best recording that they have done. Recorded with Mike Mogis (the Faint, Cursive, Bright Eyes, Songs: Ohia), In the Grips of the Light not only showcases Racebannon's explosive capabilities, but Mogis' diversity as an engineer
I'm yr egomaniac sittin', shittin' in the windows. Ceiling fan, conditioner putting this face back on this grin. This grin made me a fortune while you were outside in the dark looking for the secret to make all yr scare fall off. Call off the assistor, yr egomaniac standing clear harvesting reputations in the right and left fields.
