Title: In Due Time Artist: Funeral Home 150 plays

Funeral Home // Vera 7”

This is the kind of music to get lost in. I was sent these tracks a couple days ago by a guy named Taylor MacKillop who creates music under the name Funeral Home. Now if you’re assuming that a name like Funeral Home is an indication of dark music then you’d be dead (heh) wrong. In fact I get an unexplained warm feeling when I listen to his music. Stylistically the music borrows from shoegaze, drone, and I might even hear a little Smashing Pumpkins in there. He has a talent for creating a wall of noise with nothing but thick guitar distortion and simple drum beats. It’s a great sound, but where Taylor really surprised me was lyrically.

On the title track “Vera” Taylor quotes a passage from I Corinthians 13. “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.” Now I don’t know what your religious affiliation might be, but there is alot of truth in that one verse. It’s not something that I expected to find in the music of a guy who calls himself Funeral Home. Altogether these two tracks feel very weighty. The music is something to be digested not just played once and then forgotten. So hit up his bandcamp for some free downloads. It’s well worth your time.
