Big Blood - Unlikely Mothers

New MusicadminComment

Psychedelic and prolific folk rock outfit Big Blood have recently released their second album this year, and you can stream it via the widget above. The title of this thing: Unlikely Mothers.

It's a double album that features a series of long, patient, and droning psych folk dirges that are both eerie and gorgeous. The album's cover art and concept directly reference the aunt and mother of frontwoman Colleen Kinsella, both of whom were nuns during Vatican II; however, Colleen's mother left to pursue other things--you know, like being a mother.

While some of the tracks--and this record, generally--feel unnecessarily long-winded, there's something twisted and alluring about the nine songs here.
