Community Records is pleased to offer Thou's Inconsolable - acollaborative companion EP to 2018's full-lengthMagus -offering eight Thou compositions expressing the band's ongoing confrontation with the grotesquerie and power of modern civilization with a unique focus on melodic vocal and string performances by the band and guests. Inconsolablestands apart from any other Thou release as the first they would call "acoustic" for a radical instrumental stride away from the heavy, electric instrumentation that's seen them relegated to such genres as sludge, doom, stoner metal, post-metal, grunge, and post-hardcore but, despite this, establishes its potency in acoustic guitar, violin, and other strings and melodious lead vocals by guest performers KC Stafford, Emily McWilliams, Melissa Guion, Nicole Estill, Jacques Boudreaux, Michael Moss, Clayton Hunt, and Dr. Scott Francioni. Thou frontman and pillar of New Orleans' DIY culture, Bryan Funck, would appear to be totally absent for the album's lack of his signature vocals. But, to those of us who have worked with Funck in New Orleans and beyond, his voice manifests just as presently on Inconsolable in other signature contributions such as philosophically pessimist lyrics, his self-effacing support of his community, the ironic streak that he likes to use as a smokescreen, and, of course thebrutally obscure Nirvana worship. Thou's Inconsolableis a collaborative album that, unlike ever before, offers Thou's love of dark, 90s guitar pop beyond the macabre, through the macabre. Fans of Thou, Wolves In The Throneroom, True Widow,The Bees Made Honey in the Lion's Skull,Fiona Apple, Pope,The World Is A Beautiful Place, and so many others absolutely should not miss this!
