Boomkat Product Review:
Hailing from Athens, Georgia, Summer Hymns are now onto their fourth album proper, and a thoroughly ambitious affair it is too. The ornate production job on this record took four years, five locations and some fifteen musicians to complete. Rather than sounding like the mess of ideas it could have done, Backward Masks instead comes across as a deeply varied body of songs. Singer/songwriter, Zachary Gresham is at the root of everything here: his frail alt-country croon framed by the crisp, brittle, Sparklehorse-like arrangements. In fact, ‘Pity and Envy’ is reminiscent of that band’s ‘Maria’s Little Elbows’, which is certainly no bad thing. You can even hear a bit of Neil Young/J. Mascis-style upper register in Gresham’s vocal on the gorgeous balladeering of closer, ‘When The Bombs Fall’. Great stuff.
