Cult Nation top-6 Post-Punk albums of 2014-
"One thing noticeable in 2014 was the current crop of "post-punk" revivalist bands trying to bring back goth that missed the boat. Sure, a lot of it was enjoyable, some of it even memorable, but it lacked something very tangible that made 80's post-punk/death-rock/goth bands what they were. That x-factor is elegance and romanticism. Shadow House gets this. They open Hand In Hand with ample rock kick, but the x-factor is best showcased on "Haunted." The synths are a key part of this, but the guitar is really complimentary and creates layers. These layers are what keep them from just being a dark punk band. They don't shy away from the kinetic elements of punk that goth sprang from. But truth be told, goth owes much more to David Bowie's theatrics than it does to the Dead Boys. The emotive web woven on "Lonely Psalm" re-kindles the same passionate place that made "Disintegration" such a great album. It brings back a feeling that makes me want to stop eating, grow my hair out and start smoking cloves again. The songs are less sprawling than the pictures Robert Smith paints with his guitar, yet despite the somewhat lo-fi production, the guitarist makes the most of what he is working with. All the right effects are in all the right places. The singer has heart in his baritone croon, he is not just doing an Ian Curtis impersonation. "Old Crime" could almost be spun into an 80's night set and go unnoticed...Label: MASS MEDIA Records"
