Fifth album by Lakes, aka Sean Bailey from Melbourne, Australia. Since 2002, Lakes has released a constant stream of 7-inch’s, cassettes, CD-R’s and LP’s cloaked in a thick mist of noise and lowfidelity. 2011’s Winter’s Blade pointed to a new direction and strength of production with a challenging take on bleak folk, medieval wanderings, and the darker side of post-punk. The newest Blood Of The Grove marks the squaring of the circle with ten brand new songs: simple yet evocative, direct but solemn. Think of Rose Clouds Of Holocaust-era Death In June covering Discharge’s Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing and you’ll get what we might call combat-folk aka how to match peace-punk impetuosity with post-industrial acoustic ballads. One long-awaited and well-deserved comeback, for fans of the classic sounds of Current 93 and Sol Invictus, as well as for those you dig the curt and martial ones by Joy Of Life and Above The Ruins, obviously without forgetting to mention the influence of the local heroes Strength Through Joy.
