Cold Specks - Reeling The Liars In (Swans cover)

The always-weird work of Michael Gira and Swans is perfect for Cold Specks’ “doom soul” touch. If you’re not yet hip, check out Al Spx’ debut album, I Predict A Graceful Explosion. It’s wonderful. 

This excellent cover came my way via Stars’ "You Guys Are Awesome" Tour EP. Free download here: 

Cold Specks - Lay Me Down

Cold Specks has somehow slipped under my radar until now. I was making dinner last night with Later with Jools Holland on in the background when I was stopped in my tracks by a stunningly unique voice. It was Al Spx, AKA Cold Specks, a 24 year old singer-songwriter from Canada. If you’re not yet familiar, stop what you’re doing and give this your full attention. I hope you’re as blown away as I am. Happy Friday. I’m off to listen to every bit of Cold Specks I can find.

Here’s the video from Jools:
