Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Specter at the Feast

Black Rebel Motorcyle Club - Specter at the Feast (March 19, Abstract Dragon/Vagrant) - “We all wanted to cover a Call song for this record" BRMC co-founder and co-frontman Robert Levon Been says of “Let The Day Begin,” the newly revived 1989 rock radio hit from the band once led by Been's late father (and BRMC tour engineer) Michael Been. "It means a lot to us to be able to pay respect...for all he’s done for us”...New project is the band's first since Michael's passing and 2010's Beat The Devil's Tattoo, an album Rolling Stone described as "unremittingly grim, and undeniably fun"...Specter may have it's own ghosts considering Been's description of the recording process as "excruciating", but despite the band's reputation for darkly gothic leanings, this is hardly a dirge. Drummer Leah Shapiro anchors the trio's propulsive thrust on tracks like the stomp-fest "Rival" while the more subdued "Lullaby", "Returning" and sprawling LP closer "Lose Yourself" turn what could have been a morose wake into something both beautiful and inspiring. Stream "Let The Day Begin" after the jump...
