Vatican Shadow – Rehearsing For The Attack

Vatican Shadow has something of a penchant for long, enigmatic track titles – personal favourite: Boxes Were Wired to Batteries Then Loaded into a Brown Toyota Cargo Truck – so while Rehearsing For The Attack is positively breezy as far as names go, it’s an undoubted highlight from a catalogue that’s both extremely extensive and reliably excellent. Taken from this his latest LP Persian Pillars of the Gasoline Era (see?), it has the effect of being incredibly calming, despite the at times unnerving clanks and scrapes emerging from the glassy darkness.
