Husband and Knife

More of Them (Than Us) (Divorce)

KC Spidle hasn't cheered up at all since last year's An End LP---if anything he's gotten bleaker---but that's OK, as long as he keeps making music about it. Unearth your cassette player for this EP-on-a-tape. Spidle's sparse, guarded vocals and guitar are now backed by Evan Cardwell on bass and percussion. The first two tracks, the sullen and comparatively rocking "Mystery Man" and the intense, nearly psychedelic "Hymn," are the strongest of the seven songs. Spidle is like Ian Curtis on a bad day here. It's more tormented, but more mature, than a year spent with the curtains drawn and The Cure's Disintegration on repeat.
