Jozef Van Wissem streaming ‘When Shall This Bright Day Begin,’ playing NYC with Holy Sons
Given the man's extraordinary output, is it fair to wonder whether one van Wissem long player is like another? Well, yes and no. His collaborations and film scores often feel more open to suggestion and seem to boast a sense of dark glory (witness the brilliant trio of records made with Jim Jarmusch). For the purposes of this review, however, we should say that the new record certainly feels more gnomic than It Is Time For You To Return. And where It Is Time… boasted open-hearted tracks like 'Invocation Of The Spirit Spell', with Soapkills' Yasmine Hamdan, When Shall This Bright Day Begin is, essentially, Van Wissem, a lute, and an array of effects and samples given a twist in the studio.
Jozeh also has a few shows coming up this year, including one in NYC with Emil Amos' band Holy Sons. That's a great double bill, and it happens April 11 at Le Poisson Rouge. Tickets are on sale now.
