While this new album maintains it's artistic mix of aurora boralis-avant-indie pop and post punk, CHURCH MOUTH paves a new musical path for the band. A departure from 2006's drum-machine and sequencer-heavy "WaiterL You Vulture!". CHURCH MOUTH leans on Led Zeppelin, the White Stripes and Santana for inspiration. Front man John Gourley was also listening to a lot of Blind Willie Johnson, Muddy Waters and Robert Johnson when he wrote the record. While most of US who grew up in the continental US were raised on Saturday morning cartoons and sugary cereal, Gourley's Alaskan upbringing was unorthodox; his youth spent exploring nature in one of the few virtually untouched territories left in the world. As a result, his striking enigmatic vision makes it's mark on the band's packaging, merch design, videos, photos, posters and music.
