Forget everything you thought you knew about Shooter Jennings. The acclaimed singer-songwriter is kicking off a bold new chapter in his career with new band Hierophant, a mind-blowing project that completely obliterates genre distinctions. On 'Black Ribbons (Black Country Rock/Rocket Science Ventures),' twanging dobros coexist with Nintendo chipsets; brutally assaultive passages alternate with moments of unabashed tenderness, and surreal Floydian soundscapes float above smoking slabs of whiskey-soaked southern soul. It's an electrifying thrill ride across a dense, dark and gloriously decadent musical landscape.
