Broken Limbs Excite No Pity, LAMONT’s second solo album, was tracked in Chicago’s Minbal Studios with Sanford Parker and, like its predecessor, Feral Songs For The Epic Decline, finds LAMONT handling all facets of sound from vocals, saxophone, guitar, percussion, and electronics. At its base, music is sound (noise, if you like) organized into patterns. And those sounds/noises don’t have to be pretty ones, as long as the patterns are compelling. With Broken Limbs Excite No Pity, LAMONT demonstrates an ability to create hypnotic, ominous, emotionally resonant, and even somehow transcendent arrangements of patterned sound. These aren’t “songs” like you hear on the radio. They’re literally sound art. This is an album you dunk your head in like a bucket of ice water, and when you pull it back out, you’re not the same person you were before.
Broken Limbs Excite No Pity is out now on CD, digital, and limited vinyl formats. For orders, and to stream the record in its stunning entirety, visit THIS LOCATION.
View LAMONT’s videos for “8-9-3” and “Goodbye Electric Sunday,” initially premiered through BrooklynVegan and Revolver respectively HERE.
“…nuanced and dark, touching upon peaceful moments at one end and flying into a manic rage at the other.” — Noisey
“…a strong showcase of his understanding of dynamics and musical duality.” — Metal Injection
“…a fantastic release for anyone who appreciates experimental and left field approaches to heavy music.” — Blabbermouth
“…a haunting mix of industrial noise, dark ambient, and other sinister yet meditative sounds,” — BrooklynVegan on “8-9-3”
“…a musical odyssey that ranges from eerie and desolate to unhinged and cacophonous, with a low key, cool interlude and a melancholy, reflective conclusion. It is truly a unique listening experience that inhabits the less frequented genres of avant garde metal and experimental jazz.” — Indy Metal Vault
“Leaning heavily on a minimal drum loop and a guitar tremolo that sounds lifted from a Dick Dale or Ennio Morricone record, LAMONT‘s new song sounds like a lost Nick Cave recording — sexual, minimal yet dense with darkness and subtext and ultimately beautiful and well executed.” — Revolver on “Goodbye Electric Sunday”
