the final third of “sodus” swells to cinematic heights, becoming emblematic of the influence late-1980s soundtracks have had on kyle reigle’s output as cemeteries.  the recent portland, oregon transplant is slated to release a new album, barrow, july 28th via snowbeast and track and field records; “sodus” is the first single culled from that project, and should function well in its penultimate placement on the album’s track list.  the grand, ethereal gestures that define the song’s latter stages are grown organically from melodic fragments that gradually bleed together in cavernous reverb, but “sodus” is truly held together by reigle’s downtrodden sighs that weave effortlessly through the track’s dense textural thicket.  get lost in the new single from cemeteries below.
