Dadamah - Violet Stains Red

Magnificent gloom from Roy Montgomery and his early '90s outfit Dadamah. Recorded in 1992, Violet Stains Red somehow never saw release until 20 years later. Quite the oversight as this is a terrific number, with the droning organ, stripped back rhythm guitar and Montgomery's serious and declamatory vocals all judged to perfection. It's got that classic New Zealand lo-fi murk and a curious kind of stately passion about it. Minimal big mood music.
