B.E. Godfrey

Wild Desperation

Available May 20, 2014

 

Houston-based B.E. Godfrey is bringing his self-described “alt-folk murder ballads” on May 20, 2014 with the release of his debut EP Wild Desperation. Blending monstrous dark folk and melancholy indie rock, Godfrey creates cinematic soundscapes evoking strong emotional imagery. Wild Desperation’s opener “Get You Gun” sets the record’s tone, “I’ve always approached songs with a mix of vague imagery and heavy-handed metaphor,” explains Godfrey. “I think these songs follow that formula.”

 

Working with help from critically acclaimed producer Robert Ellis and Chris Longwood at Sugarhill Studios, the team created a master plan for how to approach the songs, recruit the necessary musicians and create the overall dark aesthetic reminiscent of Leonard Cohen, Bill Callahan, and Jason Molina. The result is a narrative of guilt, human nature and acceptance.
