Like last year's album 'f#a#(infinity)', this one is pure emotional documentary, replacing grainy Super-8 with violin and glockenspiel, ditching facts and statistics for the rage of a man taped on a street in Providence, Rhode Island. "To attack someone's mind is a social disorder," says Blase Bailey Finnegan III, field recording and namesake of the second and final track on this record. For in Godspeed's worldview, everyone's a marginal prophet. Words, though, are beside the point - their lexicon of faith, misery, hope and tenacity is written in every glockenspiel chime, in each intimate drone, in the build and fade and build. It's impossibly beautiful music for plain impossible times. Yes, we are a long way from home. But here, in this low and lovely noise, is a place to keep you warm.
