Simply put, there isn’t a single band that’s making music with the ferocity and intent as Sightings right now and definitely not in the same manner. This Brooklyn trio’s third album, Arrived In Gold, is a huge step forward in terms of innovation and technique. What’s amazing is that this record was (as far as I can tell) recorded live, with minimal overdubs, and most interestingly, non-synthetic instruments! That is, Sightings is a guitar/bass/drums trio, but very few of the sounds on Arrived In Gold sound like those instruments at least not any that weren’t chopped up in a blender and spat back out. Fucking awesome.
