TAR052 It Only Gets Worse - Christian Country Home

Thank you for coming.

Throughout his life, he was loved by few, and cherished by even less. That does not mean he had no worth, indeed, it only added value to his glints. His gaze has often stopped us in our tracks, making us consider the act in which we were caught. He held up a mirror, of sorts, in which the edges were reflected more than the image. The cracks were tendrils, shoots, messages to be deciphered.

He bequeaths you only this, his most solemn proof of existence:

"this is not what I meant, not at all."

I trust you know what he means.

Thank you for coming.

IOGW is Matt Finney (of 'Heinali and Matt Finney' fame) and Maurice de Jong (Gnaw Their Tongues). Matt does vocals and writes lyrics and Maurice does the music.

'an atmospheric, immersive, and daringly bleak record that lulls you by whispering softly, only to eventually gnaw at your bleeding eardrums'

'Christian Country Home will make you sad, for sure, but for music as good as this, that’s a small price to pay.'

'Christian Country Home contains moments of such sweet sorrow, but on the whole, this album is bleak as fuck.'

Matt on 'Christian Country Home':
Christian Country Home is taken from a lyric in a song by the country band Alabama. In a lot of ways it's me writing about my home in the best way that I can. It's also about the past 2-3 years where I've had to become a caretaker for my dad, it's about me trying to get over someone and it's about me trying not to fuck everything up. It's about me trying to let go. I couldn't have done this if I didn't have someone as incredibly talented Maurice in my corner.
