A brand new solo release from legendary poet,
harpist, tattoo artist, and singer and lyricist of
PUPILS and CONE OF LIGHT, DANIEL HIGGS. Higgs has
presence in both body and voice, and this,
combined with hypnotic
repetition, gives the material on Ancestral Songs
both a loose
discipline and an immense yet serpentine power.
Ancestral Songs is
comprised of apocalyptic tunes, a banjo raag,
and the sci-fi-sounding duet of a searing Jews
harp and toy piano.
"Are You of the Body?" brings out the electric
tamboura tone and an
accompanying acoustic guitar to melt the spine. A
guitar riff propels Ancestral Songs to a close by
focusing on the
consistent tone and vibration that flows
throughout the album.
