The lineups on Peacers records are often in flux, but at the core Mike Donovan (Sic Alps) is always digging into the bile and bone marrow of lonesome nights and desperate blues. This time around he welcomes back Bo Moore, Shayde Sartin and Mike Shoun and the first cut from the upcoming Blexxed Rec feels like the band coming into its own. The last record had its teeth flashed, slashing apart the weathered cool that Mike had slung on his debut. A couple of solo records in the same headspace followed but something here feels like its flowing back to the distilled waters of Wot and the eponymous Peacers debut. “Irish Suit” is just a quick clamp on the consciousness, but it leaves a mark. Hung heavy and heaving, its just the kind of wearied smoke we need circulating in the early days of 2021. The new record is out via Drag City on March 26th.
