BABY ON BOARD

posted February 7th, 2023

With the impending arrival of Drag On Girard on March 24th, the brilliance of Mike Polizze’s music, beyond the obvious — his singing/screaming guitar leads, classic song construction and vivid hope + dream feels —is the shifting, dynamic personality of each Purling Hiss album. This time out, the colliding circles of time seem to have inspired both the songs and the band, as the sentiment-drenched mood explodes in a wild tangle of guitars set to overwhelm the room.

For the past twenty years, his recordings have alternated between these two complimentary poles, with ‘pop’ records such as The Amber Gatherers and A Wonder Working Stone nestling in his expansive back catalogue alongside “folk” albums such as No Earthly Man and What News (with Amble Skuse and David McGuinness).
