Epizootics!: music by Scott Walker

The enigma of the artist known as Scott Walker has long been a fascination of mine. The lush orchestral sounds of his early work always hits a sweet spot when the cold months of December and snow descend upon the wilds of Pennsylvania.

Equally enthralling and fascinating is his later and much more difficult solo work, which he has released at a glacial pace since the early 80s. Dark, unsettling, enigmatic and cold, they are the gold standard for difficult listening. These later works took me years to penetrate or at least somewhat wrap my head around. This unsettling video of the first single from his upcoming LP, titled Bish Bosch, seems to indicate Walker hasn’t lost his touch.
