Gowns are a band evolving around the partnership of Erika Anderson - previously the guitar wrangler in Amps For Christ - and Ezra Buchla - ex-horror show vocalist and programmer for The Mae Shi.

Gowns cast an apocalyptic net over a broad church of influences, hauling in their fractured folk songs with cracked electronics, lending their confessional lyrics the directness of a spooked grunge approach, whilst embracing their smart oscillating pop with troubled atmospherics.

Truly unique and wonderful, we were impressed enough with their Red State CD (Upset The Rhythm) to offer them a Latitudes session, sightunseen.

Meeting them and seeing them live after they'd done the session made us happy in a "we've just won the lottery" kind of way.

Great people, stunning performances. They fact that they performed a wacked-out version of Crass' "Shaved Women" only made our hearts swell more.

Their Latitudes session captured them on their first UK tour, as a four-piece, and it's pretty damn special.

"Broken Bones" is a limited edition of 1000 handpacked, foil-stamped CDs. File Under: Noise, Folk For Friends of: Amps for Christ, The Mae Shi, Smegma, Merzbow.
