Yes Blythe, is Callum Higgins, the head & body behind Baptists & Bootleggers, Sacred Tapes, River Slaughter and countless other projects. He has made a big impression at Gnod HQ with his relentless work rate , off the wall concepts and soldering skills.
Following his debut album, Keep The Faith, earlier in the year, Yes Blythe returns with Initiate Screen Prevails, a two track EP. Both tracks are an attempt to capture the raw energy of recent live outings but with a more thorough, carefully constructed approach. Building layer upon layer Travels Nerves To Freedom is an onslaught of run out grooves, twisted to their limit into a grumbling mass with subtle changes guiding it along. At Labyrinth Borne-Sun sees the return of the field recordings and subtle melodies that have defined previous work by Yes Blythe.
This really is a perfect autumn/winter release ,one for early mornings/late nights by a fire.
Following suit of the hand packaged nature of his earlier releases, Initiate Screen Prevails comes housed in a recycled card sleeve with a fabric insert.
