Tonight in Music: Cold Specks

Posted by Lex Chase on Tue, Nov 20, 2012 at 10:28 AM


COLD SPECKS, BLIND BARTIMAEUS
(Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside) So what do you get when you cross Southern gospel with goth? "Doom soul" as beautifully sung by Cold Specks (AKA Al Spx, a Canadian singer/songwriter living in London). Intense lyrics are paired with driving gloom that never quite tips into depression, and a voice whose darkness is always reaching upward toward the light. WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY Read our article on Cold Specks.
