Om: Pilgrimage & live extravaganzas

Back in the Fall, Om released a transcendent episode entitled Pilgrimage on Southern Lord, now available on vinyl and cd. Dominant revolving riffs repeatedly twist in and out of one another while a background of deep low percussion gives off a looming eerie feeling that things may soon break, but they never do, and by the time you realize it you will be tight within the talons of Om’s spiritual journey Pilgrimage. This is the slow burning brain melter you have been waiting for. Pilgrimage was recorded and engineered by Steve Albini at his Electrical Audio studios in Chicago and produced by the band. Mastering was handled by Bob Weston. Some might call this stoner rock, – a category both redundant and lazy, because almost every musician I know smokes dope, but few make music this good.
