Fuzzbook has some kind kind words and a premiere from the debut Blood Cousin EP.
‘You Won (or, We Have All Lost)’ is the debut EP from Virginia based lo-folkers Blood Cousin.
"Theme of the Raven" is taken from the EP which borders the thin red, white and blue line between Americana and dark folk. The 4 tracks are distantly dreamy, kind of like what I imagine an EP recorded by a ghost might sound like.
The EP is available to stream now courtesy of the excellent FURIOUS HOOVES and will be available via download or 3” mini-CD soon.
Blood Cousin have an EP coming out in June, but you can stream You Won (or, We Have All Lost) now on bandcamp. According to their soundcloud, this EP ”takes on the tragedies of life: living, loving and losing.”
1. Evolution, Florida
2. Theme of the Raven
3. Ark of Jones (The Noble)
4. And Here We Are, 9 Meals Away From Anarchy
Will be available digitally and as a limited edition 3” CD housed in a unique handmade foldout sleeve.
December 21st 2012. It’s almost here. Whatever you believe, we have something to get you in the mood. Blood Cousin surprised us tonight with the first single from an EP, soon to be released in the winter of 2013. “And Here We Are, 9 Meals Away From Anarchy” builds up a doomsday scenario for all of us here at Furious Hooves… and frankly we’re excited to see what comes next.
Perfect|Midnight|World has some kind words about our Halloween Split from last year.
“Day 2 (Await)” by Blood Cousin // Last Night I Walked With a Zombie (Split) (2011)
For the past couple of years, Furious Hooves has been releasing splits for Halloween. Last year saw the first release, a split between Mumbledust and Blood Cousin, which saw both bands tackle dark folk tracks that celebrate the eerie music of the season. “Day 2 (Await)” is one of those tracks - the one from Blood Cousin - and it’s a pitch black beauty that sounds like the somber ballad of a low fog rolling in over graveyard. It’s melancholic guitar barely enough to rise the lovely, hushed vocals out of a whisper. Highest recommendation.
