 MOISTWORKS : AN MP3 BOOMBOX
Atmospherically, "Shankill Butchers" most resembles Decemberists songs like "Eli the Barrow Boy" -- sparse, haunting laments that put Meloy's knack for poignant melodic phrasing, not baroque language, on prominent display.
Like all the songs on The Crane Wife, "Shankill Butchers" seems to unfold across a sprawling, foggy screen, each image iconic and radiant in its lucidity.
While the Shankill Butchers are real, you wouldn't know it from the song: Meloy excises the Irish terrorists/serial killers (whose atrocities were so extreme as to surpass the political and enter fantastic realms of abstract, unfathomable malevolence) from our shared reality, remaking them as the boogeymen the rational mind needs them to be.
