In comparison to their last album, 2009’s 421 Wythe Avenue (named after the exact address in Williamsburg, Brooklyn where they wrote the album), Denmark’s Alcoholic Faith Mission’s new release, Let This Be the Last Night We Care, is a bouncy, carefree waltz in the park. Musically and lyrically, the beautiful darkness is still there, but taken up a few notches with more songs that inspire mini-dance fests around one’s bedroom.
With somber tracks like “Closer to Dallas,” that induce chills with haunting vocals by Kristine Permild that echo like ghostly whispers down a deserted hallway, and “Sobriety Up and Left,” perfectly placed around the poppy “Got Love? Got Shellfish!” there is a perfection to the album’s line up.
Full of snark, wit and ache, the eloquent vocals of the five-piece band is extraordinary on this most recent effort. If they don’t have you in love with them by “Honeydrip,” then maybe it’s time to hit up the doctor to see if you have a pulse.
Alcoholic Faith Mission will be touring the Northeast until the end of May, when they head back home to Europe for a summer tour.
Begin your worshiping here.
