Boomkat Product Review:
North Carolina’s Wayne Robbins & The Hellsayers are certainly one of the more interesting contemporary alt-country groups to have emerged recently. Neil Young is an obvious touchstone here - his influence is cast over the entire album, not least because Robbins’ voice sounds so uncannily similar to old Shakey’s. This is especially true on ‘Sarah’s Lament’, an exceptionally accurate piece of Crazy Horse-imitation. But it’s what comes next that separates The Hellsayers from the pack: ‘Jesus’ condenses the band’s ambitious sound into a single song, beginning inconspicuously as a piece of decent enough acoustic frippery before erupting into an almighty wall of noise. It’s as if someone’s playing Merzbow and Buffalo Springfield simultaneously. It’s moments like this that elevate The Lonesome Sea beyond the usual country fare, placing The Hellsayers on a similar trajectory to Wilco, creating very contemporary-sounding, progressive takes on the classic rock blueprint.
