alexa writes: "in shadow, he appears neanderthal; in light, he waxes angelic. who is dead western? he is a man of a gaping mouth, out of which pours — as readily as water from a faucet — a haunting, bewildering, beautiful voice, reminiscent of scott walker (circa climate of hunter). this bellowing voice, like an ancient reptile, slithers and wraps itself around the most tender acoustic melodies. dead western sounds like a forest growing (the throatless groaning of age-old trees); feels like a victorian passage through limbo (grey, ominous); looks like a grecian statue (as drawn by robert crumb). this is the sort of music one feels profoundly acquainted with — but not something generally found in record format. it is the shifting of rock, the scuttling of insects, the hissing of the wind: frightful, eternal."
