• THE SIGIT - Detourn LP
Arrive on 2nd week of October 2019
With Detourn, The Super Insurgent Group of Intemperance Talent has outdone itself. Detournresonates with the raw, proto-metal punch of the bands that filled the smaller ballrooms of San Francisco in the late '60s. The opening cut, “Detourn,” explodes with thundering rhythms hammering down over heavy riffs. It sounds as though guitarist Farri Icksan somehow procured Tony Iommi’s white Gibson SG and the distorted Orange amplifiers from Black Sabbath’s “Paranoid” video. Here and throughout Detourn, frontman Rekti Yoewono croons with the angst of Flower Travellin’ Band’s Joe Yamanaka and the soulful howls of a young Robert Plant. There’s a palpable ache in his voice when he sings of soured brotherhood: ”I thought you were my peer/Turns out you’ve got something to fear.” The SIGIT toes the line between proto and heavy metal in “Let the Right One In,” a high-energy rocker that takes its name from John Ajvide Lindqvist's 2004 vampire novel. The psychedelic “Conundrum” closes with Yoewono’s vocals breaking up beautifully.
