ETHER HAWK: Self-titled: CS

Mar 29, 2016

If I say Ether Hawk features Al Burian and guys from Planes Mistaken For Stars and Pelican, you already know if you want this or not, right? Okay then, five songs from this now-defunct band. It’s a little brooding and fractured. There’s a little Motörhead swagger (“False Unicorn”), some odd stoner riffage/near falsetto work (“Born to Suffer”), and it’s all over pretty quick. You’ve got a decent outing that may be a liiiiittle unmemorable. That aside, it’s obviously damn solid for a demo, and the extravagant cassette gatefold packaging certainly helps.
