The High Confessions - Turning Lead Into Gold With The High Confessions

The High Confessions is a collaboration between Sonic Youth’s Steve Shelley, Ministry/Revolting Cocks vocal maestro Chris Connelly, Chicago metal multi-tasker/producer Sanford Parker (Minsk, Nachtmystium, Twilight), and another Chicago producer, Jeremy Lemos of White/Light. The quartet’s signed with Relapse to release Turning Lead Into Gold With The High Confessions, a title that promises some sort of alchemy. It works: The 5-song/50-minute collection’s a slow-release patchwork of dark clattering tones, drum rolls, drone, outbursts, noise-rock, shades of Current 93, weird industrial chatter. The old-school post-rock opener “Mistaken For Cops” is a scene-establishing intro that makes way for the four challenging, satisfying 10 minute epics that follow it. They’re best when they take their time:

The High Confessions – “Mistaken For Cops”
The High Confessions – “Along Come The Dogs”
The High Confessions – “The Listener”
The High Confessions – “Dead Tenements”
The High Confessions – “Chlorine And Crystal”

Turning Lead Into Gold With The High Confessions is out 7/20 via Relapse. I’m told they already have new songs written/recorded for the next album. That one could be out as early as next year.
