Patrick Kelleher & His Cold Dead Hands – ‘Too Many Harsh Words’


In April, we got the chance to hear the first new bit of material from Patrick Kelleher & His Cold Dead Hands in the form of the “whacked-out ghost disco” of ‘Miracle Candle’. That song and recent live sets suggested Kelleher was moving his sound on further and for extra evidence may I submit ‘Too Many Harsh Words’, the second song from the Golden Syrup, the forthcoming album out on July 15th through Osaka.

‘Too Many Harsh Words’ is indicative of Golden Syrup, a kraut-disco groove with a big-ass bassline with synth squelches and blotches. I love it. The label says that the album has “a more gothic, minimal synth sound.”
