Without a doubt, society needs music that will offer healing and respite from the stresses of the day, and The Soft Pink Truth have just the balm. The side project from Drew Daniel, one half of Matmos, has a new offering, the impressively titled Shall We Go On Sinning So That Grace May Increase?. We haven’t heard all of the record, we can’t say for sure if there’s an theological element at play. What we can tell you is new single “We” offers up some very transcendent beats, tempered with some gorgeous gospel-style harmonies. Halfway through the track’s eight minutes, it transforms into something even more monastic sounding.
It sounds good…real good. If Daniel’s goal was to create music to counter the anger and frustration that life has thrown our way, then mission accomplished.
