Boomkat Product Review:
Dais Records got us by the goolies with this dark star from TJ Cowgill aka King Dude. Equal parts Tom Waits and Alan Vega, plus a few decks of marlboro red and some black metal blood, TJ's bloodcurdling backwoods croon is genuinely arresting from start to close, whether placed in the canyon of motorik drums and plangent guitars on 'Holy Land' or set to spectral acoustics in 'Barbara Anne' and 'You Can Break My Heart'. "Coal dust spirituals mined from the haunting backwoods landscape of the Pacific Northwest. Stories of the constant struggle of man’s turbulent affair with his Lord and the Devil. Burning Daylight produces a maturity and direction that in unparalleled…showing us the word, the way and the light."
