Cold Specks - I Predict A Graceful Expulsion

2014-04-03 267 Dailymotion

Cold Specks' "I Predict A Graceful Expulsion" is available from Arts & Crafts May 22.


Cold Specks is songwriter and vocalist Al Spx from Etobicoke, Canada, who now lives in London. The band's name is taken from a line in James Joyce's 'Ulysses':

"Born all in the dark wormy earth, cold specks of fire, evil, lights shining in the darkness".

Describing her sound as 'Doom Soul', Cold Specks' music is steeped in the musical traditions of the Deep South. With a voice that evokes the 'spirit feel' of Mahalia Jackson and the visceral tones of Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Cold Specks' sparse arrangements and chain-gang rhythms stop you dead in your tracks.
