"Cathedral With No Eyes" is the second proper release by Railcars. In this record, LA/SF based multi-instrumentalist Aria Jalali recounts the life of Edmund the Martyr, a 9th century King of East Anglia with songs about his life and succession to the throne as a young boy, his conquests, and his suffering at the hands of vikings and death by their arrows. This time around Railcars make an attempt to more accurately recreate the whirling, dizzying fury of their live performances, flowing continuously yet shifting without warning, translating the story of St. Edmund into walls of noise, sputtering drum machines, dying electronics, and tales told in distant shouts.
