Salvation, the latest release from Maine musician Jacob Augustine is one half of a new split 7” release from Pretty Purgatory Records. It’s an exquisite and poignant track, the accompanying video for which only adds to the emotional impact. Augustine’s vocals, high up in the range, do not make the moment any less distressing, but there are glimpses of heaven when he rises up for the almost yodelled chorus “and those blues…”, and some divine slide guitar at least provides peaceable passing.
Salvation is backed with Glory, Glory by Bad Braids. You can purchase the single now from Pretty Purgatory over on Bandcamp (link below).
