Jimmy Sisco from Absolved / Platoon 1107 has another rad project called Anchorhold.

A musical vessel for dealing with grief while watching a loved one struggle and succumb to death. Is is a look into the heart of a son who was about to lose his father.

When Jimmy‘s dad was diagnosed with an advanced cancer that would quickly take his life, Jimmy Sisco documented his own struggles and emotions during that period of time via Anchorhold, a project he created specifically for that purpose. In the spirit of journal-keeping, four songs were written at particular points during that five-month journey to chronicle specific circumstances and memories. Contemplative, cathartic, visceral, emotive, and intensely personal, these songs are a look into the heart of a son who was about to lose his beloved father. Continue reading »

Jimmy Sisco, who is better known for his work with aggressive punk rock bands the Absolved and Platoon 1107 is the latest Thumper Punk Records artist to contribute a 3 song acoustic ep.

The three songs contributed by Jimmy Sisco can certainly be described as a labor of love as Jimmy not only performed the songs but also recorded, mixed, and mastered them.  Most of all the ep opens with the folksy “Son of the Wind” which was actually written by country-western artist Jim Sisco, Jr. in 1970 and recorded by son Jimmy in the days before his father passed away from cancer.  One can’t help but feel the emotion in the track, a fitting tribute to a father.  For the next two songs, Jimmy reads Old Testament scripture from Haggai accompanied by some backing ambient music describing the call to rebuild the Lord’s temple.

Today is the release of Jimmy Sisco’s contribution to the 3 Song Acoustic EP series. As the singer/guitarist/songwriter for Absolved and Platoon 1107, Jimmy has released some of the biggest, most aggressive music on Thumper Punk Records. For his 3 Song Acoustic EP, the music is delicate, balanced and soulful, with one track of 70s era folk and two readings of Old Testament scripture over ambient backgrounds. The first song ‘Son of the Wind’ was written by country-western artist Jim Sisco, Sr., in 1970, and recorded by his son Jimmy in the days prior to his father’s death from cancer. Recorded from the most sincere and loving place in one’s heart, Son of the Wind is a tribute to a son’s love for his father.

Chapters One and Two of The Book of Haggai were recited from the King James Version. These songs present experimental ambient soundscapes below the sounds of Biblical text recitation. This is not Holy Scripture set to music…this is music set to Holy Scripture. Continue reading »
