LOVELY SORT OF DEATH, A: New Beginnings: LP

Very heavy, I’m not quite sure what to make of Lovely Sort Of Death. I do like the fact that the lyrics are printed on the back of the sleeve, but I’m not sure I understand the music. Influenced by Albini Chicago sounds of the 1990s, it’s not especially contemporary, which is admirable in and of itself. The music sort of meanders, though, seeming to intentionally strive for a lack of accessibility. To some, this is probably a wildly creative, serious endeavor. But it’s pretty damn painful.
