STONE BREATH
GREEN SHROUDS FOR DEAD GODS, GREEN SWADDLING FOR GODS REBORN
7"EP
2003

"Stone Breath, from the wilds of rural Pennsylvania, have long been at the forefront of the contemporary acid folk scene,
combining dark ancient sounding folk drones with the pure light generated by the post-Incredible String Band generation.
Anyway, they have a new single, Green Shrouds for Dead Gods/Green Swaddling for Gods Reborn, and it is gorgeous. Using
banjo, harmonium, jaw harp, glasstamboura, bull fiddle, and vocals, the duo create more moss-draped mystery than you'd
need to hide an army of Clive Palmer robots. And even though there is a distinct Christly content at times, the way these
guys roll out their sound just about obliterates that move's inherent discomfort for atheist listeners."
