We’re back with another Riot Act Reviews, the show where Steve and Remfry give their expert opinion on one of the more notable releases in the music world. Today we’re speaking about one of the most unique and singular artists that Britain has ever produced; Rolo Tomassi and their 6th studio album Where Myth Becomes Memory.
As the follow up to 2018’s critically adored Time Will Die and Love Will Bury It album, there is a hell of a lot of expectation on WMBM, but if you’ve been following us since the beginning, then you’ll not be shocked to hear that we think they’ve skillfully sidestepped any accusations of delivering a disappointment. This is very much a continuation of the previous album, but with an extra lacing of hopefulness and positivity, bringing an end to an exceptional trilogy of records for the band. So, as ever, you can be guaranteed some sublimely brutal riffs, some euphorically soaring and shimmering clean passages and all manner of rhythmically inspiring and bewildering grooves, plus a few new tricks pulled from the Rolo Tomassi bag. We conclude with Remfry talking to James and Chris from the band about how the record came together.
