Retribution Gospel Choir Awarded 7.5 On Pitchfork



Download: Retribution Gospel Choir - "What She Turned Into"

It looks like everything is coming up Milhouse for Duluth-based trio Retribution Gospel Choir. First off, the band, an offshoot of Low, played the Turf Club this past weekend to celebrate the release of their new self-titled album. Secondly, the band, who are self-described as group that writes "two minute pop songs (that) run into psychedelic improvisations and drum-n-bass-heavy dub", just received a positive review for their efforts from the likes of Pitchfork, who awarded the album a rating of 7.5.

Check out the lede: "Who knew it would be such a pleasure to hear Alan Sparhawk-- master of minimalist pop--rock out with his cock out?".

Read the rest of the review here.

Whether or not you laughed or shrieked at the image of Sparhawk rocking out sans pantaloons, you can order the album directly from the Caldo Verde website by clicking here.

Listen to "What She Turned Into", a song from Retribution Gospel Choir, at the top of the post.

You can listen to lots o' RGC bootlegs and other Sparhawk side projects at http://www.walloftvs.org/music/theblackeyedsnakes

I have a bad memory for sets... if anybody sees the set list from Saturday at the Turf, please post it up. I'm pretty sure it was almost the same as their March 8 CD release show in Duluth, as posted on the aforementioned blog.
