New Ceremony

Back to 2012 and some of the sadly now defunct Dry The River.

“Why, oh why did they have to go their separate ways?” he wailed.
At least they left us with two albums. And a few videos too. This is New Ceremony, from Shallow Bed: their debut foray into the world of music.

Set, as you will note, as some sort of series of dioramas of American history and life, is it bemoaning the divisions in that society, begging for some sort of resolution between warring parties?

Possibly. Either way, it’s going to be on repeat on the iPod for this weekend.
