Stirring stuff...

There’s no doubt that much of the attention that Michigan’s Pity Sex have received is because of their eyebrow-raising name. Yet, the buzz that surrounded their 2013 debut, ‘Feast Of Love’, was entirely justified, and this is a worthy follow-up.

Its 12 sultry, sumptuous songs see Brennan Greaves and Britty Drake swap turns singing over a wash of fuzzy, forlorn guitars – ‘Burden You’ and ‘Nothing Rips Through Me’ are like distant memories that never quite go away but are never fully-formed either, while ‘Wappen Beggars’ closes the album with a blast of wistful yet powerful longing that both eviscerates and emboldens.
