about

"The four tracks are a perfect example of how to successfully combine the spoken word with atmospheric and powerful backing music.
Each song varies slightly in style, with the Tom Waits-meets-garage-rock-sounding Conjuring Annie, the mellow Aglow, and the mystical Summer Annie. Insight into the mental state of the concept EP’s subject comes to fruition in the third song, and personal favourite, Headnoise. The track draws comparison to early Black Sabbath, with Ozzy’s melodies being replaced by the gruff voice of Yashmak Webs’ frontman, Dean Geary.
If you find yourself sat inside on a rainy afternoon, grab yourself a brew or glass of red, stick this record on, and let yourself get lost in the gritty poetry and flowing sounds."
