Sweet Baby Jesus get deeply mystical on "Lyres of Ur," play The Glove 3.29

Sweet Baby Jesus get deeply mystical on "Lyres of Ur," play The Glove 3.29

New York’s Sweet Baby Jesus makes the type of raucous, freaky garage rock you’d expect from their namesake - sloppy guitars shred against screaming revelations at a breakbeat pace, infected with a distinctly Americana vocal quality that feels equal parts Bob Dylan and Ian Mackaye. Their latest effort, Lyre of Ur, has a clear spiritual inspiration, described as “a lilting melody, draped in the burden of a deep gut feeling and weighted by a soul of stone.” I’m unsure as to the source material Sweet Baby Jesus frontman Pooty (no surname given) drew from in writing Lyre, but I admire its soulful quality and joyous mysticism - it promises a divine stage presence when SBJ takes to The Glove on March 29th, supporting Palberta and SSS. Until then, stream Lyre of Ur below. -Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt)
