THEY may not sing gospel, and most of the time there's only one person singing - but if you don't check out Minnesota group Retribution Gospel Choir, you'll regret it, mark my words.
2, the Low side project's unimaginatively-titled second album, pays the listener back with a guitar slinging psychedelic rock selection akin to Black Mountain or Sleepy Sun, with Jimi Hendrix-esque blues influences, all propping up the sturdy soul of vocalist Alan Sparhawk.
Less grindingly slow as slow-as-they-go slowcore act Low, the group instead have Terminator-like unstoppable feel to their sound - dubbed "mediumcore" - trudging relentlessly through guitar solos, riffs and sonic explorations until they get you, and Retribution is served.
