  • Recording information: Bear Creek Tracks (11/1998-12/1998); Rafter Roberts' Garage (11/1998-12/1998).
  • The Black Heart Procession's beautifully bleak postmodern folk-rock falls in with the work of the Willard Grant Conspiracy, Tindersticks, Palace, Lambchop, etc. Like those groups, BHP use fragile, elegant music to frame poetic lyrics that express a deep sense of alienation and disillusionment. Like Lambchop, they use every instrument in the book to achieve their aim, from trumpet and synthesizer to sheet metal and toy piano. These sounds converge in the service of some artfully crafted, delicately rendered songs that appeal to the sensitive bedroom poet in all of us without ever getting too precious or solipsistic. 2 makes sadness sound downright redemptive.
Professional Reviews
Alternative Press (9/99, p.92) - 4 out of 5 - "...playing morose and dreamlike blues and country....It's hauntingly somber, yet nightmarishly comforting."

Magnet (8-9/99, pp.68-9) - "...yet another solemn reminder of how much fun it is to roll around in one's own musical miasma."

The Wire (7/99, p.64) - "...within the confines of their mordant...gloom, they ring some inventive tones out of their idiosyncratic instrumentation..."

CMJ (5/17/99, p.26) - "...Wisps of sheetmetal clatter, singing-saw shivers and what sounds like the creak of a swinging, rusty gate add a menace to the band's slightly disorienting songcraft....sensual, hypnotic music..."

Melody Maker (6/12/99, p.34) - 3 1/2 stars (out of 5) - "...This sombre gem would undoubtably sit comfortably alongside prime Nick Cave."
