Recorded live at Paradiso in Amseterdam. 

Christened 'Jesse Sykes and the Sweet Hereafter' in 2002 (based in Seattle, WA.), singer-songwriter Jesse Sykes and guitarist Phil Wandscher (who co-founded Whiskeytown along side Ryan Adams), began what has become their long lived musical partnership.

Though oft-saddled with the “alt-country” tag, of late Sykes and Co. are moving into some heavier, darker territories. In fact “The Sinking Belle”, Sykes’ contribution to the Sunn O))) / Boris collaboration "Altar", has already become an underground classic among followers of the unlikely art-metal movement centered around the Southern Lord label. (Jesse sang and wrote the lyrics and melody of 'The Sinking Belle'). The band has toured with Earth, a group commonly acknowledged as one of the major progenitors of Drone Doom (and another member of the Southern Lord roster) and psych-rock maestros Black Mountain.

Sykes and her bandmates are a group of musicians whose music resonates, against all standards of modern musical genrefication, in the parallel worlds of the avant-garde and the timeless. Sykes’ voice and the sometimes-mystical leanings of her songs (the former described perfectly by Magnet as “sounding less like a performer and more like a sage”), and the band’s incomparable feel all lead to what the New York Times has described as “spellbound music, rapt in fatalism and sorrow.” Perhaps it’s this thematic darkness that has lately drawn attention to their music from a decidedly heavier crowd than in the past.

Fun facts: Their music has appeared in the films '12 and Holding', 'First Snow' and 'Eldorado'; As well as in an episode of 'True Blood' (from season 1), on HBO.
