Psalmships Set to Sail at DDG Nov. 12

Psalmships Set to Sail at DDG Nov. 12

Placid riffs and dreamy reverb cast “Resurrectionist” serene, sad and nearly romantic. Psalmships’ frontman and founder Joshua Britton vocally bridges the gap between the extremes of indifference and passion, affection or even love. Inherently moody, the song’s lyricism lends itself to shuffling backbeats reminiscent of post-rock anthems by Glasgow’s Mogwai or the less dreary Explosions in the Sky. Britton’s diction delivers itself with a slightly Cash-esque drawl, establishing an eerie basis for Psalmships' self-descriptor. Yes, this is “ghost folk” and it will seep into your bones. A new Americana, Psalmships’ EP Black Forest Withers, released this month, hums with the underpinnings of a genre seeped in the tradition of storytelling, inventive structures, and mood altering sound. Set to sail with Psalmships tonight are Ropeadope’s local music community lovin’ crew The Spinning Leaves and NYC's The Loom, who you should definitely catch with their big entrancing dark, brooding folk rock sound and gorgeous vocals.
