Wash the Sins Not Only the Face

Esben and the Witch

Released January 22 2013


Format: LP/CD/DA

“{Wash the Sins Not Only the Face} is full of purpose. The entire album’s fraught ambience builds to one majestic finale: “Smashed to Pieces in the Still of the Night,” the seven-and-a-half minute closer, slowly burns and swells to a Grand Guignol crescendo. All of the tension built across the album comes to a head in a bursting, operatic release; yes, this is how you close a record.” Under The Radar

Wash the Sins Not Only the Face is the sophomore album from Brighton’s Esben and the Witch, and was released on this day in 2013.
