Steve Von Till
Steve Von Till has charted an extraordinary musical path over the last several decades, from his main duties as singer and guitarist of the boundary-breaking Neurosis, to the psychedelic music of his Harvestman project and the unique folk songs he’s released under his own name. His latest album, No Wilderness Deep Enough, is like nothing he’s done before; it’s devastatingly beautiful and overwhelming in its scope, reminiscent of the tragic ecstasy of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds‘ recent work as well as the borderless ambient music pioneered by Brian Eno, late composer Jóhann Jóhannsson‘s glacial compositions, and the electronic mutations of Coil. Alongside the album, Von Till just released his first book, Harvestman: 23 Untitled Poems and Collected Lyrics. The book is a collection of new poetry and lyrics from Von Till’s solo career over the past 20 years. It’s a work of rich text that showcases his deeply felt ruminations on the myriad beginnings and endings of life itself.
