Albums of 2014: Esben and the Witch

Esben and the Witch’s strengths have always overshadowed their weaknesses. Of the brief glimpse we’ve been allowed, their tendency to get lost in their own rambling, murky world has perhaps shone the brightest. On A New Nature, that criticism is completely diminished thanks to a powerful, throttling rhythm section. It constantly blows away the cobwebs, both figuratively and literally, but still allows the guitars the space they need to let their hair crawl. It’s best represented on opening track “Press Heavenwards”, which lulls the listener into a false sense of security (or cause for concern) before blasting a thousand volts of pure, terrifying Esben in your face.
