Fort Worth crew Pinkish Black cite names like Suicide, Magma and Scott Walker as influences on their new self-titled effort which is due via Handmade Birds on May 15th. While there are definitely elements of all of those highly-influential greats, Pinkish Black also utilize elements of post-punk, goth, black metal, deathrock, noise, ambient and all other manners of darkness on the release. They come off like a death-obessed Om on the band's first track "Bodies in Tow" (video below) yet very Nick Cave/Birthday Party on "Fall Down" the band's second track which premieres in this post. Listen below...
