Building on last years compilation Nostalgia Kills, 12 Omeros is ten tracks of the finest industrial tropicana from Auckland four-piece, Sharpie Crows.
The four-piece's debut full-length album, featuring ten tracks and cover art by Alex Brown (Street Chant), 12 Omeros is the diary of a fevered dream. It contains a love song, a manifesto, memories of past lives, all tinted with the ecstatic nihilism of the seriously ill. The music recorded by the band (Sam Bradford, Casey Latimer, Jackson Hobbs + Steven Huf) veers between the velvet unease of lush brass and synthesiser to the improvised fury of a sarcastic punk band destroying a garage. Sharpie Crows are the house band of your troubled conscience, and this is their masterpiece.
12 Omeros is available digitally, with some bonus b-sides hidden in there. Plus if you are in quick enough - on limited edition b(h)and made CD, each with a unique message on the disc and lovingly wrapped in a 12 Omeros poster.
