Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra - Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light on Everything Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light on Everything… Even the title’s epic

Review: Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra – Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light on Everything

Published on January 28th, 2014 | Jonny Abrams

Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra (as they are now known) came into being when Godspeed You! Black Emperor member Efrim Menuck decided to try and learn to score music, but their distinctly GY!BE-ishly titled seventh album Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light on Everything sounds more naturally occurring than it does intricately plotted.

Energetic songs lurk within the eruptions of distortion and inflamed tangentialism, instantly raising this bunch above the hordes of post-rock copycats and providing a suitably climactic framework for such ingenious touches as the fiddle that scales the 14-minute “Austerity Blues” like some kind of wild, frayed vine.

The “see that mountain torn down” refrain feels apt here, for that’s just what Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra do: they build musical mountains then burn them to the ground in order to sculpt new ones, such as the cacophonic, on-its-way-into-ancient-battle-sounding “Take Away These Early Grave Blues”.

Climactic dynamics aren’t their only currency, as shown by the mystery-enshrouded little piano interlude of “Little Ones Run” and the kind-of-Flaming-Lips-y despondent melodrama of final track “Rains Thru the Roof at the Grande Ballroom”…see, even some of the titles are epic.

You might find Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light on Everything a little wearying overall, but it’s damned impressive stuff regardless.

Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light on Everything is out now on Constellation.

You can buy Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light on Everything on Amazon.
