RobMoro Feature Burning Alms Tour
Formed during 2012 around the long-running musical partnership of guitarist/vocalist John Biggs and drummer Tom Whitfield (both formerly of Calories & Distophia), Burning Alms quickly outgrew that of their previous projects.
Listening to their album “In Sequence”, you quickly establish this noise rock long player that sounds like Rivers Cuomo doing a punk rock album.
Opening with a 30 second track of background noise, the album takes flight with "The Aperture Colonised", ‘ So Unreal’, and then onto "Ressler", a fantastically apt breaker track from the fast-paced openers.
Further listening and you would think this album was made for a movie, although it isn’t, the idea doesn’t sound far off. The sixteen track long player holds shape and the pop laden instrumental tracks are worth their place.
Acoustic tracks make their début on the seventh track "The Pastoral", then later on "River Sea Originates" and "The Periphery". It’s like the dark side to modern life with an outlook to brighter days.
‘In Sequence’ is out on 4 August 2014 through Smalltown America Records.
Best Track: "Night Climates"
