Kirin J. Callinan - Embracism

What to say about Embracism, the debut studio album from Kirin J Callinan? Well it's been a long time coming so it shouldn't be any surprise to find plenty of the abrasiveness we've come to expect from both demos and the live show.

You may however be surprised to find a host of soft touches, from the almost-melodic opener Halo to sweeping new single Victoria M (a track dating back to 2008's elusive Am I A Woman, Yet?).
