This year we released Eiyn Sof‘s acid-folk tour de force Meadow Thrum on CD. It quickly sold out and we were pretty happy about that. But over the following months the nagging feeling that the album is too good to not be in print got to be overwhelming. Thus this new deluxe reissue was born. Limited to 50 copies, it comes in a special printed envelope with a full colour insert card.
You can order it HERE. ($6.00 CAD + regional shipping)
“… an album pitched equidistant from full-out folk and mind-melting psychedelia. Meadow Thrum is a consistently riveting, occasionally confounding collection of escapist sounds and musical textures. File Meadow Thrum next to the most verdant and lush folk records or the most transcendent of alternative records in your collection; Eiyn Sof sits comfortably in both worlds.” ~ Dominionated

Or watch the video for Another Bad Day.
The second in our series of split tapes. This time we’ve paired up Healthy Animal (FLA) with Summer Amp (BC).
Side 3: Healthy Animal – 7X Untitled. Seven nameless compositions from the East Coast of the USA. Rhythmic and fuzzed-out, Healthy Animal’s music is as much a part of the No Wave and Krautrock traditions as it is the new schools of Chillwave and Shitgaze. But who cares about labels? HA bury pummeling rhythms under waves of blissed-out white-static psych haziness. Sounds kind of like a possible score to Charles Burns’ graphic novel Black Hole as performed by aliens who only know earth music from hearing Brian Eno on a poorly tuned radio-station.
Side 4: Summer Amp – Danger Zone. Five pro-wrestling inspired psych/noise jams from the West Coast of Canada. Features members of New Yaki and The Madonna Bangers. The vibe might be described as the sunburned hand of Tully Blanchard. Or tribal/industrial folk music for life at the end of the universe when there’s no electricity to play your Can and VxPxC records.
40 mins (total). Edition of 34. 2-sided full-colour poster insert. Cloth bag. Free mp3 download links.
