Drab Majesty, “Too Soon To Tell”

Michael Brummett

Vintage horror flick soundscape.

 

Background

  3. 39 By Design
  4. Not Just A Name
  5. Hath No Form

  9. Kissing The Ground
  10. Forget Tomorrow
  11. Behind The Wall

The Demonstration

Thoughts

“Too Soon To Tell” is a smooth, late 20th century cultist, Big Trouble In Little China masterpiece. Similarly to “39 By Design”, this interdimensional post-punk is highly contagious. Having begun as a solo act, the now duo is filling in the gaps between our world and the next — all with a spectacle and admirable wit.
