"Holy Gallows’ new effort, Agita, is a dynamic soundscape composed of meditative drones and analog climaxes. With only two tracks clocking in at approximately 15 minutes each, Agita sends the listener into a collage of symmetrical rhythms and patterns. Led by Memphis-based musician Mark Brake, Holy Gallows creates a brick wall of sound—textured, layered, thick, and expertly crafted. Holy Gallows may remind you of Godspeed! You Black Emperor, Tim Hecker, or Loren Connors. However, Brake takes a patient approach in shaping his own form of guitar-led ambience. Agita is its own distinct narrative, an album embracing the sonic forms of both anxiety and relief."
