Anchored by the fried electric guitar and plangent voice of band leader Efrim Menuck, Thee Silver Mt Zion Memorial Orchestra (SMZ) returns with its sixth full-length recording and continues to slide comfortably and unforcedly towards an expansive, loose and blues-inflected balladry – not so much the riffing blues shuffle of 13 Blues For Thirteen Moons, but a more languid waltz-time marking an almost smouldering dynamic arc, as heard on the new album’s opening track “There Is A Light” and closer “’Piphany Rambler”. Driven by some of this decade’s more devastating lyrical conjurings of the universal outsider and the thematics of 21st century western psychic oppression, these are no simple paens to the human spirit, but songs of complex, desperate and thorny hope.
