AUDIO: The Old Northwest – “Lowland Hymns”
The long-awaited record from “doomgaze” band The Old Northwest is finally out on Triple Eye Industries. The three tracks here venture into depths of sludge, noise, and ambient as they ascend and descend into both hopefulness and desolation. The band is seasoned in this juxtaposition, and such a contrast is ever so relevant in 2020 where society continuously teeters on both victories for the people and failures of the state. Each track is improvised and was recorded in one take. We hope all that hear this record see it fit for a timely soundtrack as we are halfway through this abomination of a year.
