John Cratchley Gritty...vibrant...assured...edgy and alive!
I still reckon early Fairport Convention must have been an influence...but with Crazy Horse tagging along...then again, Jorma Kaukonen and Barry Melton spring to mind...

Clay Watson Adds some edge and rawness to the studio tracks, which were superb to begin with. The haunting vocals of the studio tracks work surprisingly well here also. The guitars are an entrancing combination of soaring lines and solos with some Neil Young grittiness at times. The new tracks are excellent as well. Looking forward to the next album. Favorite track: Rama.

‘The Chapel’ was recorded live to tape on Tascam 388 at the Chapel in San Francisco on January 27th, 2017, capturing Heron Oblivion at peak stage powers and bookending nearly a year of performance and touring in support of their critically acclaimed self-titled debut for Sub Pop Records.

‘The Chapel’ is a 51 minute set featuring performances of 6 songs from their debut album and two new and previously unreleased tracks, including a smoldering 8 minute cover version of Doug Sahm’s ‘At The Crossroads.’

Engineers Chris Woodhouse (Thee Oh Sees, Fuzz) and Eric Bauer (Ty Segall, Heron Oblivion, White Fence) strike a perfect balance of bootleg in-the-red rawness and multi-track vintage analog fidelity to create a unique piece that Heron Oblivion fans will surely find essential as the band closes the first chapter and heads toward a new one and their second studio album for Sub Pop. ‘The Chapel’ is self-released by the band on limited edition vinyl (1000 copies) and digital only.
