If there’s any residue of sunshine in your soul, this stark single by Michigan gloom-garage rockers the People’s Temple, appropriately titled “Jim Jones,” will chill it down. Lead singer William Young manages to elevate this heroin-soaked street walk into something darkly charismatic. In the background, meanwhile, a dark psych riff echoes from the reverbed maw of what sounds like the Subway of Lost Souls. Hellhounds aren’t just on his trail, they're howling at his heels.
Still, a thin glimmer of hope remains with his chilling invitation: “When I build my home, would you share it with me?” It’s bound to be an experience, should you choose to accept it; this Temple is destined to gather legions of cult followers.
