New Psalmships EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

It’s been a moment since we’ve heard from Joshua Britton and his project Psalmships. Well, he's back with a new EP, titled Keep Your Words. Haunting, folk-blues turbulence permeates. A hearty heaviness quakes as one feels the emotive impact of the music.

   

New Track: "Fill the Sea" - Psalmships

“Fill the Sea” is the new single from Psalmships, and it is featured on Joshua Britton's forthcoming EP Keep Your Words. A twisting riff leads into a quaking backend as treacherous, sonic seas are entered. The weight of the instrumentation is sliced through by the guiding, ghostly vocals. Psalmships will be taking the stage at PhilaMOCA on Saturday, May 18, on a billing that also includes The Bones of J.R. Jones and Dan The Movie.

Psalmships Album Release Show at Bourbon & Branch July 11

I Sleep Alone (Big School Records), the freshly released LP from Psalmships, the Joshua Britton ghost-folk project, will be celebrated this evening at Bourbon & Branch. The record finds a balance, using lyrical depth that hits home with its unshielded poignant potency. A natural open-air atmosphere gives these earnest tales room to breathe, allowing Britton’s pensive words to resonate, burying themselves deeper in one’s mind, while sharpening their honest eeriness. It’s as though through expressing an emptiness that a catharsis occurs. The penetratingly clear rock of Downingtown’s Chelsea Sue Allen joins in on the experience with Indiana-based folk rocker Nathan Edwin rounding out the bill. Bourbon & Branch 705 N. 2nd St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita
