Remember when people made videos of the album’s single? Even if Coal Aberrations was going to have a single, this wouln’t be it. But I thought “Hey Judas, Don’t Let Me Down” suited the footage best. Anyway, I think it does a good job of what a video is meant to: sell the album. Which is available here.
12: Gown / RobRobRob (split) 2010. Cassette. Deluxe cloth bag edition w/fold-out (limited run of 50). Free digital download link included. The first two sides in our new split cassette series.
1: GOWN – Jake’s Strut (Live in Sackville, 2009 w/Omon Ra) (20 mins) “MacGregor’s voice floats through the murky composition like a lost firefly, giving off light every so often in hopes that he’ll be found again. A foggy oasis steeped in washed out guitar effects, psychedelic clouds of harmonies that float by like the first black clouds before a beautiful thunderstorm.” ~ Foxy Digitalis
2: RobRobRob – Water / Garden at Night / Pocket Thesaurus / Untitled / Sun on curtains (20 mins) Hailing from Scotland via The Netherlands, guitarist Robert Gray’s style floats between harsh beauty and gentle noise. Free-form improvisations that are neither acid-folk nor shoegaze and somehow both. Something new called Folkgaze? Maybe.
We received the shipment of tapes for “Sides 1 + 2” of the cassette series from the duper yesterday. They look great. Side 1 is Gown (Canada) and Side 2 is RobRobRob (Scotland/Netherlands). Still waiting on a few more components for the deluxe packaging to arrive and then they’ll be released finally!
Work progresses on sides 3 + 4 and we’ve been speaking to a couple fine bands for possible sides 5 + 6.
