Anthony Donovan & John 3:16: Of The Hex & Its Likenesses

Anthony Donovan & John 3:16: Of The Hex & Its Likenesses

A bit less “post-rock” than I remember the previous John 3:16 album sounding like, this one has vaguely spaghetti western-sounding guitars, which sometimes erupt into harsh feedback, as well as shamanic drumming and atmospheres, creepy whispered vocals, and clicking/sparkling electronic tones. It is nebulous and orbital. It meanders, but then it is grounded and focused. It resists order and format and clears its own path. It is swampy and down-and-out, yet it’s viewing the cosmos from a spiraling asteroid twisting its way throughout the solar system.
