NEW MUSIC: Kirin J. Callinan – The Teacher (feat. Connan Mockasin)


Callinan has finally released some new material to follow up his 2013 LP Embracism of which we said “he has been overwhelmingly successful at marrying violent dissonance and the traditional art of songwriting”. ‘The Teacher’ sees him hitting new romantic power ballad mode with an emotional tale of teen lust, role models and positions of power and influence. The tongue in cheek angle has been upped and I’m not sure in this case if it benefits the song. I personally preferred the darker  intensity of Embracism but who know where the rest of the new album will go when it emerges blinking into the daylight.
