Not Waving & Dark Mark
Ecstatic Recordings
Catalogue Number
Release Date
August 2, 2019


The union of Not Waving and Mark Lanegan produces an LP of dark, dystopian balladry. On Downwelling, Lanegan operates under the name of Dark Mark. This proves to be a fine advertisement for the sort of performances he brings here - while the brooding Southern Gothicism of mid-period Nick Cave is the closest touchstone, the likes of Tom Waits and Scott Walker also skulk in the corners of Lanegan’s desert-noir delivery. Not Waving’s instrumental accompaniments are consistently excellent, framing Lanegan’s voice with everything from ominous digitised folkscapes (‘On The Yard’) to blissful, almost Laraaji-style ambiences (‘Persimmon Tree’). Not to be missed.
