|DAVID E.WILLIAMS Hospice Chorale CD. Digipak
Although conceived as a rootsy return to his early days of lyrical nihilism and musical minimalism, Williams' 7th full length serves more as an old fashioned revue of strengths and idiosyncrasies, from the gallows cabaret of "The One Who Doesn't Die" through to the vocal-free power electronics of "Catholic Nihilist. Curious and inventive textures abound, but old fans will feel warm and fuzzy as usual within the confines of these preternatural songs of innocence --"Someday I Will Live My Life as a Horse"-- and experience -- "Thailand? (Why Can't All the World Be)."
