Hawthonn "Red Goddess (Of This Men Shall Know Nothing) (Ba Da Bing!)"
I cannot tell a lie. Hawthonn’s new LP Red Godess (Of This Men Shall Know Nothing) is in turns frightening and hauntingly beautiful. So at times, it can take you to a place of serene calm with passages that ache with the gorgeousness of sunsets. Other times, it’s gonna sound like a murder man has you tied up in his damp basement and this is the soundtrack he’s gonna play as he decides how miserable he’s gonna make your last remaining minutes. So yeah, it’s a little from column A and a little from column B. But both columns are fun, as is evidenced by the Philip Glass meets Buffalo Bill sounds of “Misandrist.”
