Tar Halos - Tar Halos

Label: N/A
Year: 2012

Brought to our attention via the eagle-eared James Joyce (yes....THE James Joyce), the Tar Halos have released an 8 song digital record ahead of their Volar Records vinyl debut in the near future, and since one of the Tar Halos is a Mr. Josh Bohannon, friend of the blog (and of the poor as well, he's very charitable), and a guy with an impressive discography in his own right, it seemed natural to hit this up here.
Unlike the previous thunder boogie of Bohannon's work with Electric Nazarene, Tar Halos brings together a survey of post-punk that connects the dots between Halo Of Flies, Chrome, Kraftwerk, Joy Division, Trans Am, The Ex, even a U.S. Maple or two. From track to track the variety is what will bring you back in for multiple listens to explore the depths of weirdness the band plumbs.
Honestly, this is one of the more interesting and rewarding records I've heard in a good minute...highly recommended. Most highly.
