Alright. At this stage, we should just change our name from Sleeping Village Reviews to, I dunno, the Breaths Premiere Access Channel.
Indeed, eagle-eyed readers will undoubtedly remember our coverage of this one-man dynamo's output in the past: we premiered not one but two tracks from Breaths' stunning debut. Both "Lined In Silver" and "The Forgotten Ones" were exceedingly worthy of a lil' love from our scriberly staff, and today's track in question is no exception. Indeed, it may be one of my favorite Breaths efforts to date, and, given how fuckin' good Lined In Silver is across its mighty breadth, that's saying something. And to top it off, this banger comes with a sweet video to boot.
Can it get any better? No, sayeth this slumbering scribe. Anyways: as always, we're honored and privileged to share Jason's killer work. Check out "The Elders" below, and, as always, we'll catch ye on the other side. Enjoy!
These premiere things typically come equipped with a vaguely tangential intro. However, I'm too damn excited about today's track to meander en route to our destination. Without further ado, then:
Breaths is the latest project from multi-instrumentalist (and multi-talented, while we're at it) Richmond's own Jason Roberts. If you recognize the name--or the vocals, in due course--it's because we slumbering scribes have previously covered not one but two of his other bands: dreamy post-metallers CHNNLR and doom-afflicted post-metallers Conductor. This time around, however, he's striking out in a solo endeavor...that also carries itself with a certain post-metal gravitas. The track lurking below, "Lined in Silver," is the titular lead single in advance of Breaths' forthcoming debut album. Give it a listen, and, as always, we'll be waiting beyond the fold.
We provide thoughtful reviews of music that is heavy, gloomy...and loud enough to wake us from slumber. Written by a highfalutin peasantry.
What are ye
