In the '90s, before he was known for his work in bands like Grails and Om, Portland's Emil Amos wrote an estimated 1,000 songs under the moniker Holy Sons, inspired by a lo-fi, home recording movement in indie rock that was probably more experimentally minded than the one that is currently coming to a close. My Only Warm Coals, which he released to little fanfare as a 10-inch late in the latter part of that decade, compiles 10 of his most memorable songs from that prolific period, all recorded on a four-track. On April 23rd, Important Records will be re-issuing the cult favorite with nine previously unreleased Holy Sons tracks. The sinister and smoldering "Aged Wine," below, is one of them.
