Sightless Pit is a new band which includes Lingua Ignota (aka Kristin Hayter), the Body’s Lee Buford, and Full of Hell’s Dylan Walker. Grave of a Dog is the first full-length album which is out today via Thrill Jockey. We already shared a couple of tracks; now full streaming is available via Bandcamp. Listen below.
On Grave of a Dog, the trio of Buford, Hayter and Walker combine their profound talents and eclectic tastes to make music that is defiantly original and emotionally sublime. Their debut album was crafted without any clear rules or guidelines beyond their desire to work with one another. The central pillar to what coheres the three into a unified voice throughout the album is a shared bleak vision of existence and a willingness to follow each other into bold new territory. Over the course of the eight tracks, the trio reflect the extremes and emotional weight of their world view through elegiac dirges, driving beats, explosive crescendos. Together, three strong voices unite to create a work of remarkable clarity of expression of enormous sorrow, futility and most of all, beauty.
