Ballads of the Revolution. Sing Your Own Song (Bonus Version).

A good quality pressing, sounding clean, just the way this beautiful music deserves. The album cover is completely minimalistic. A completely white gatefold cover with a blue stamp, and that's that. No liner notes, no artwork on the back or the inside, not even a title on the spine.

The Sacred Harp is the title of an American songbook first published in 1844 that collected hundreds of traditional hymns and anthems dating back to Colonial times. Passed down by oral tradition, these polyphonic songs were meant to be sung a cappella by choirs, and were written using a unique four shape-note notation. This simplified manner of notation was created to encourage active participation, emphasizing an inclusive sense of community over performance. For their fifth album Flags of the Sacred Harp, the Portland-based collective Jackie-O Motherfucker use the lessons of The Sacred Harp and other traditional blues and gospel sources as a point of disembarkation. On these seven tracks, the group patiently unravel their source material's tangled threads, respooling them into wondrously evocative yet deeply personalized new devotionals.

The break was beneficial, because this is the group's tightest, most pleasant album to date. What strikes first is the song orientation: at least five of the seven pieces can be rightfully called songs. That said, fans of the group's experimental side need not worry. The 16-minute instrumental "Spirit" aptly illustrates that persona of Jackie-O, while a song like "Nice One" develops into looser sections that surely couldn't be interpreted as a sellout decision.

But on Flags of the Sacred Harp, the folk-rock aesthetic is purely cosmetic. Even the more improv-laden sections of the album never veer anywhere near the realm of gratuitous wankery. Perhaps Flags of the Sacred Harp represents the next step in the evolution of free-folk towards a more song-based approach. 1. Nice One 2. Rockaway 3. Hey! Mr. Sky 4. Spirits 5.
