about

Release Info :

Whip is the solo project of Timesbold's Jason Merritt, and functions as an outlet for some of his less band-orientated musings; those that are better served by more sparse, minimal arrangements.

His second full-length as Whip, "Atheist Lovesongs To God" is the result of a prolonged period of solitude towards the end of 2003 when, having just returned from a tour with Timesbold, Merritt simply shut himself into his home in Brooklyn, New York, and stayed there. The recurring theme throughout the album is hinted at in the title; Whip's inability to allow any sort of God into his life, while harbouring an overwhelming need for the sense of solace and security that it may provide, resulting in a collection of songs that he claims are the closest thing he has found to divinity.

The album is full of musical and literary reference points, and while the vocals are instantly reminiscent of Will Oldham, the quality of the songs and the overall package here render comparisons futile.
