Windhand – “Two Urns”

A couple weeks ago, Richmond, VA’s Windhand announced the details of their Jack Endino-produced third LP, Grief’s Infernal Flower, which follows their awesome 2013 record, Soma, as well as frontwoman Dorthia Cotrell’s self-titled solo LP, which came out earlier this year. And today, Windhand deliver their forthcoming album’s first single, “Two Urns.” The new song doesn’t suggest any major advancements to the band’s sound, but major advancements weren’t really necessary: Windhand make elemental stoner doom that’s been pretty close to perfect for two albums already. In its six and a half minutes (edited down for radio!), “Two Urns” barrels over everything in its path. That title, though … I mean, I’m sure it’s not intentional, but I can’t see, hear, or say it without thinking of this classic Simpsons gag. Nobody is saying “boo-urns,” though; they’re saying “burns,” as in, “This track burns.” Listen.
