(With a finger pointed at the speaker) Fwoof!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We’re thinking JOMF is the best flowing psych/folk unit of the last decade. They should be enjoying the cult worship today somewhere along the lines of Spacemen 3 back in the day.  This is the highly-anticipated fifth full-length and their first in three years. Jackie-O Motherfucker was formed in 1994 by Tom Greenwood and Nester Bucket layering guitars and sax over hand-cut analog tape loops and collage, collections of found sound, field recordings, cut-up classic rock, hip-hop beats and 4-tracked drones. Over a year in the making, FLAGS OF THE SACRED HARP displays the group's patient and evolved songwriting style with historic references to American blues and hymns. One of the most focused and sublime releases from Jackie-O Motherfucker, the release contains songs that are all manifestations, mutations and re-interpretations of old blues and gospel, specifically from an old hymnal called "The Sacred Harp." Three lush, beautiful vocal arrangements on each side of a 17-minute soaring instrumental, making a total of seven songs unfolding over 70 minutes. FLAGS OF THE SACRED HARP is an epic recording documenting the group's maturing skills in writing, arranging and production and is a timeless de-construction of American music.
