14 Songs, 46 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

The fifth record of 12 Stones unfolds like a compendium of all the stylistic turns they’ve taken since the early ’00s. There’s dense, pummeling post-grunge punctured by pained screams and smoking guitar gymnastics (“The Killer”); deep, bluesy ruminations on heartbreak and loneliness that reflect their Southern roots (“Hello Suicide”); and rousing, hook-laden calls for resiliency shaped by faith (“Time”). The emotional contrast between these songs reflects the battle between dark and light that has shaped singer Paul McCoy’s soul-scouring lyrics throughout their career.
