BLIXEN: Buried Sun: CS

Buried Sun is a concept album of songs written about “the vespertine, crepuscular, and nocturnal endemic to East Texas.” While you wouldn’t think to expect much from songs written about moths and coyotes and other creatures of the Texan night, you’d be dead wrong. The dark and brooding riffs on this had me quickly hooked, and it only got better after repeat listens. –Paul J. Comeau (Grey Ghost, searscadet.bandcamp.com)
