Boomkat Product Review:
The debut album by The Holy Family, an intrepid voyage through sound-worlds, This Heat-esque polyrhythms, spidery zeuhl, oceanic kosmische, Robert Wyatt-via-Talk Talk pastoral and Lalo Schifrin-esque celluloid-score tension.
"The aesthetic of The Holy Family evolved naturally via first improvisation and then a very meticulous crafting of the raw material. Recording sessions involved Smith and his cohorts - including longtime collaborators Kavus Torabi, Emmett Elvin, Sam Warren and Michael J. York - retreating to “an old house in the country well stocked with the requisite fine wines and jazz cigarettes” to lay down tracks that were then sculpted into their eventual form by Smith and engineer/mixer Antti Uuismaki, for approval and final overdubs from the rest of the collective. Mercurial and mystical yet charged with primal energy, this is a classic double album as forum for chimerical experimentation - revealing more psychic landscapes with each listen."
