Monday Morning Album Stream: Soulsavers "The Light The Dead See"
It's been a while. Nearing a month since the last post, to be exact. Let's just say things have gotten a bit hectic. Luckily, even when real life gets a little crazy, I still make time to immerse myself in music. At the risk of hyperbole, music does indeed save. That being said, I intend on catching up a bit with some Random Ramblings & Mixtapes posts. An April mixtape is on the horizon (hopefully tomorrow night) and maybe even a third post/mixtape on Thursday. In the meantime, an album stream worthy of Monday morning listening. This is the latest from an English production team/electronic duo known as Soulsavers. Their last album, 2009's Broken, was a whiskey-soaked affair, thanks to featured vocalist, Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees, Gutter Twins.) On their latest, The Light The Dead See (due out in the U.S. on May 22nd), the duo enlists a familiar voice in Dave Gahan of Depeche Mode. It's a somber record that seems to fit Gahan's croon just as easily as his work with his main gig. A sullen listen to a dreary, rainy day.
