Two things unsettled me before I listened to “Vomit”: firstly, it’s title and secondly, that it was the first single off an album called Father, Son, Holy Ghost from a guy whose famous indie breakout Bon Iverism was that he’d spent the formative years of his life in a religious wacko cult. Creepy.

As it turns out, there was very little reason for my trepidation.

“Vomit”, besides a rather harrowing first minute, is more of the lovelorn classic rock wallowing of Christopher Owens, picking up nicely where the band’s Broken Dreams Club EP last left us. Crafted in the “Hellhole Ratrace” mould, it builds into a wonderful choir-backed climax, outrageous soul-singer and all, and shows off the leaps and bounds bandmate Chet Jr. White has made in composition since their charmingly raw debut.

Father, Son, Holy Ghost will be released on September 13th.

I was not a fan of the debut as it just left me cold and I never felt the need to listen to it again but this isn't bad. Maybe I should give "Album" another try. You were right about that first minute btw.

This was great. I found 'Album' to be everything it can be easily described without being much of anything else, which I guess is why people like it but holy hell is it irritating. All the post-'Album' stuff has really shown Owens coming into his own with this sound.
