Deafheaven - Roads to Judah (2011) - “Violet”
I had the pleasure of seeing Deafheaven perform at The Casbah with Russian Circles at the end of November, which was one of the best shows I’ve been to in recent memory. My friend and I were just coming down from an amazing set by the newly signed Sargent House trio Marriages, when this band came out with their massive album opener from Roads to Judah. They completely blew me away with their post-rock meets black metal ambience and psychedelic, shoegazey passages, not to mention captivating frontman George Clarke. They put on a hell of a show and they’re touring all throughout February so check them out if you can.
