Efrim Manuel Menuck
 
Pissing Stars


CST129    180gLP / DL


Efrim Manuel Menuck’s superb new solo record is out today; the follow-up to his 2011 solo debut Plays “High Gospel” and the first new material with Menuck as central songwriter and vocalist since 2014’s acclaimed Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light On Everything from his chamber-punk-rock band Thee Silver Mt. Zion.
 
Early reviews are rightly celebrating this uncompromising and intense new work from the Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Silver Mt. Zion co-founder.
 
Drowned In Sound describes Pissing Stars as “desperate and strangely beautiful, mysterious yet relatable, and a distinctly singular experience” (we encourage you to read their full review, which is a just generally a fine example of music writing/criticism).
 
The Gauntlet says “Menuck delivers a stunning return to solo form, an album that will make people feel, even if they’ve avoided feeling for a long time” and Echoes And Dust calls it “a remarkable solo achievement from one of Constellation’s most creative of forces…a phenomenal musical experience”.

Menuck will perform his first ‘solo’ shows – joined by Kevin Doria (Growing, Total Life), who will also open these gigs with his new solo project KGD – on an initial run of regional dates, before a heavy schedule of Godspeed You! Black Emperor touring takes over. (Look for more Menuck solo live dates happening in June and beyond – more news on that coming soon.)
