A Winged Victory for the Sullen: “Steep Hills of Vicodin Tears”

Milford-5-acb

Absolutely amazing wisps of old souls and past lives float up from the ground like mists amongst the songs of A Winged Victory for the Sullen.  Stars of the Lid member Adam Wiltzie and composer Dustin O’Halloran released their self-titled project debut last month, and the teary-eyed reactions are slowly drifting forward.  A Winged Victory for the Sullen was recorded in wide open spaces in cities like Berlin and Ferrara.  They sought locations with ingrained histories.  Within churches, along rivers, and inside 17th century villas, Wiltzie and O’Halloran recorded music typically reserved for the ethereal and the fictional.  One of the album standouts; “Steep Hills of Vicodin Tears,” is a slowly lapping ocean: eroding the physical until it drifts like sand in water.  Your mind will follow.
