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.”
Golden Syrup is launched on July 15th in The Grand Social, Dublin with support from Declan Q Kelly, Magic Pockets and DJs Mici Durnin (Wall of Death/B-Music) & School Tour. Facebook event page.
