Premiere

Sinai Vessel – “Dogs”

Caleb Cordes began Sinai Vessel in 2009 as a solo project and, through the years, he gradually added more voices to the mix, from 2011’s Labor Pains to 2013’s Profanity EP through to next year’s Brokenlegged, Sinai Vessel’s first full-length centered around an established trio of Cordes, drummer Joshua Herron, and bassist Daniel Hernandez. Throughout that time, they picked up their fair share of fans and solidified their sound, even recording their debut a second time when the first attempt didn’t match up with their expectations. That long gestation period means that Brokenlegged sounds hard-won and fully-formed, as evidenced by its lead single “Dogs.” Cordes’ dense and transcendental lyricism is on full display, telling an ageless tale about a community plagued by misfortunes: “That old spirit embodies the least/ And the least are the readily seen in places nowhere near me,” he sings cryptically, as guitars alternate between crunchy and melodic and sweeping strings enter into the frame. It’s a good taste of Brokenlegged’s engagingly poetic tumult, and you can listen to it below.
