Mark Lanegan Band
Mon 18th May @ 7:30 pm
Near the end of the last song on Mark Lanegan’s outstanding 11th solo album – Somebody’s Knocking – there’s a line that sticks in the listener’s mind long after the record stops spinning.
“I felt its sound/down to my darkest, deepest root”
Somebody’s Knocking doesn’t need to be either commentary or allegory. Like Lanegan’s best work, it tells its own stories and weaves its own wonders, conjuring up feverish hallucinogenic visions to sit atop roughly hewn rock and glassy, brilliant bright electronics. And then it leaves them to penetrate their own ways right down to our deepest, darkest roots.
