Ellis Swan “Black Perfumes”

06 Dec 2012 — Henning Lahmann


Chicago via Canada twisted loner Ellis Swan is back with a new EP featuring five doomed songs of desolate neo-noir folk, Buffalo Mask. Standout track "Black Perfumes" is as subtly fuzzed out as ever, with the artist sporting an appropriately muted croon over staccato percussion and restrained instrumentation, as if he knew that whatever our plans could have been for next year, it's probably already too late for anything anyway.
