JACKIE-O-MOTHERFUCKER - FLAGS OF THE SACRED HARP (CD)


"The new configuration also includes guitarist Adam Forkner (Yumi Bitsu, Whiterainbow, Devendra Banhart). Over a year in the making, Flags of the Sacred Harp displays the group's patient and evolved songwriting style with historic references to American blues and hymns. One of the most focused and sublime releases from Jackie-O Motherfucker, the release contains songs that are all manifestations, mutations and re-interpretations of old blues and gospel, specifically from an old hymnal called "The Sacred Harp." Three lush, beautiful vocal arrangements on each side of a 17-minute soaring instrumental making a total of 7 songs unfolding over 70+ minutes. Flags of the Sacred Harp is an epic recording documenting the group's maturing skills in writing, arranging and production and is a timeless de-construction of American music." (label info)
