Dikembe – “Healer Of The Pride”

Emo-revivin’ Gainesville jokesters Dikembe sound mighty serious on “Healer Of The Pride,” their contribution to a new split with the reunited Jazz June. What begins as a melancholic wonder of interlocking guitars and pained whispers descends into a highly effective mood piece, a sterling reminder of how music can hit just as hard when the players scale back and let the tension loom. Listen up.

The Dikembe/The Jazz June split is coming 5/27 via Topshelf and Tiny Engines.
