College Rock
On John Reynolds newest release
Resurrection Town death and life are
intertwined with a wink and a nod. Love
is reveled in. Angels have tattoos. A death
row inmate ponders Passover. The river
speaks, two cemeteries take center stage,
and a suicide becomes the birthplace for
a resurrection. These gritty, meaty and
provocative songs start from the middle
of the storm and tenuously claw their way
not out, but deeper towards the center,
until they reach the eye’s false calm and
the heart’s electrical pulse.

“He took his head out of the oven
and took a look around…”
-Resurrection Town
