WU LYF - Go Tell Fire To The Mountain mp3 flac
Complete your WU LYF collection. did everyone in the UK receive this from LYF themselves? or did they sell it in stores too? I've still got this and concrete gold/heavy pop 12" with the scarf and poster and that lot. used to have the numbered envelope too but not sure if i've still got it. WU LYF used to be a fun band to follow - saw them in a basement in hoxton for £1, chatted with them after, nice guys too. Reply See 2 replies 1 Helpful.
Go Tell Fire to the Mountain is the debut album by English band WU LYF, released on 13 June 2011. The album was released to high anticipation and the backing of NME, Stereogum and Pitchfork Media. The band had the concept for Go Tell Fire to the Mountain long before the recording process took place. Roberts states that it was written "in a narrative sense and as a complete work rather than a bunch of songs thrown together
Following 12 months of carefully orchestrated guerrilla tactics, their debut album, Go Tell Fire to the Mountain, is the real litmus test to see if they can live up to their "savior of indie music" expectations, or whether their enigmatic media presence has just distracted from another Emperor's New Clothes scenario. The truth is somewhere in between. WU LYF, or to give them their full name, World Unite! Lucifer Youth Foundation, were perhaps always going to struggle in the face of such lofty hopes, and while they undoubtedly possess an enthralling if admittedly divisive frontman and admirable . set of ideals, Go Tell Fire to the Mountain is surprisingly just a little too ordinary to be considered the groundbreaker many anticipated.

But the centerpiece of Go Tell Fire to the Mountain- a stunning lockstep of drum rolls, tart guitar chords, and a maddening chant for raising beers and clenched fists- makes it clear: This is life-affirming music, repulsed by hype and cynicism. The name of the song? "We Bros". The first word of the title is the important thing: Go Tell Fire celebrates togetherness. But Go Tell Fire rarely scans as "pop music," and at times, it's content to give into pure texture and drift. Rather, this "heavy pop" translates to me as populism of real heft.

Wu Lyf have been playing hard to get. The last two years they have been playing off the wall gigs. Roberts’ organ playing sounds church like giving the songs an air of a sermon. It’s gloomy textures adding to the intensity and darkness of the album and all adding to the preaching from the pulpit fire and brimstone intensity. The fact that they recorded the album in a church in Ancoats in Manchester adds to this, the room ambience swamping the sound with a spectral wash. In contrast Evans Kati’s guitars play sunshine arpeggios tumbling in and out of the songs with deft finger picking but still adding to the pure emotion. Ultimately what Wu Lyf have created is a soul music
