Download: Dead Heart Bloom -- "Our Last Martyr"
Similar to the National or perhaps the various work of Mark Kozelek, this is big, anthemic stuff that still falls on the downbeat side in terms of outlook and worldview. Rolling Stone says: Brainchild of singer/songwriter Boris Skalsky, DHB deliver giant-sized guitar noise topped with gianter-size religious cynicism." And that's why they make the big bucks over there! Haha. The first of three EPs on the way this year, he's giving it all away for free!
