Scott Walker + Sunn O))): Soused

So I waltzed over to St John’s at Hackney earlier in the week to catch an early airing of Scott Walker + Sunn O)))’s none-more-bleak collaboration, Soused.

For me the jury’s out on whether this is the genius artistic statement everyone is saying that it is. It’s too much of what you’d expect, big drones and fractured poetry, with not enough of the sonic left turns that characterised Walker’s work from Climate of Hunter (and arguably before) until now.

The review of the event is here anyway.

For an alternative view, head over to The Quietus.
