Sumac Release New Single “Attis’ Blade”
Sumac start your Hump Day with “Attis’ Blade,” the first single off their previously-announced new album, Love in Shadow. A press release calls the song “sprawling,” which is an adjective you see used in a lot of press releases, but in this instance is definitely not just hype: the track is nearly sixteen goddamn minutes long. As I type this, I’m in minute three, and I’m loving it so far, and I also feel like I’m still waiting for the song to really begin. Take that as you will.
As for the title, it’s either a reference to a character from Fallout or a mythological Greek figure who has some relationship to castration. I’m guessing it’s the latter but who knows, there are def some peeps out there who are wwwaaayyy into Fallout.
