I have been anxiously awaiting a new labium from Retribution Gospel Choir since they released the revolution EP. Their stop in Memphis simply solidified my love for this band. They illustrated the power three players can bring to a stage.
The email to their fan base reads –
One song per side, this radio-format-challenged record will come out January 22, 2013 on Chaperone Records. Side A “Can’t Walk Out” is the crown jewel of recent RGC live shows with it’s repetitive, building, almost free, freakout – so far, probably the most accurate recording of what the band brings to the stage. Side B “Seven” sees the more sprawling side of the band – haunting, epic, and enhanced throughout by guest guitarist Nels Cline. These songs were tracked live, playing together in the same room, one take each.
Gentlemen, you have my attention.
