Stream: Barn Owl, “The Long Shadow”

barnowl

Barn Owl can kick up a pretty massive storm with guitars alone, but for their fifth album, the San Francisco axe duo wanted to make their sound even larger, supplementing their already very expansive range of textures with drum machines and warbly synths. If you listen closely to this first single “The Long Shadow,” it almost sounds like there’s an opera singer or two hanging out somewhere behind all the static-y tones and renaissance guitar counterpoint, but it’s probably just a keyboard, and in any case, the whole production just sort of swirls into a delirious mountain of guitar skree by the end. V is out April 16th via Thrill Jockey.
