“Dark Days”– the first taste from Jolie Holland’s upcoming LP, Wine Dark Sea, out next month via Anti Records. Both it and a cheap-o used copy of Neil Young’s Live Rust, that I recently re-bought, have lived side by side on my car’s passenger seat the past month. And in contrast to Holland’s previous output, the two are very much kin, sonically. Described in the production notes as skirting the line between noise rock, free jazz and swamp blues, Wine Dark Sea, and “Dark Days” in particular, feels noir, lived in, caustic and not entirely of this time.
