Lower Yourself - The New Christs
|Highlights:||We Have Landed
I Come Cheap
Nearly 20 years after forming the New Christs, Rob Younger is still making the same dark, uncompromising and compelling music that he has become renown for. Over the years he may have mellowed just an inch but he remains as intense as ever. Lower Yourself is only the New Christs second full length album (not including compilations) and like with every New Christs record, Younger has assembled an experienced and dynamic line-up to help realise his resolute vision of rock ‘n’ roll. In particular, guitarist Mark Wilkinson’s playing is excellent and is complemented well by bassist Christian Houllermare and drummer Peter Kelly. Highlights include the straight ahead Detroit sounds of We Have Landed and When while Asphalt is particularly dark and intense. It is also worth adding that the sound on Lower Yourself is excellent, although noticeably more produced than previous releases. Listening to this record is like lowering yourself into the dark depths of Rob Younger’s soul. Be prepared.
