the ebony tower - the virgin suicides.

The Ebony Tower - The Virgin Suicides

my favorite literary HNW project is back with another crushing, monumental release, this time dedicated to jeffrey eugenides' novel, the virgin suicides.

although not quite as lengthy as the 1Q84 box set, this one clocks in at nearly four and a half hours, so it's not easily digested, either.

but as with all ebony tower releases, it's very meditative and contemplative, with wave after wave of textures that all prove to be incredibly hypnotic.

it's all very cohesive, and there's great packaging as well - but that should be expected from an altar of waste release.

copies are still in stock via the link below, so be sure to pick one up.

highly recommended - another excellent release from a consistently excellent artist on a consistently excellent label.

(buy a copy from altar of waste.)

purity of essence - smířit.

Purity Of Essence - Smířit

here we have a brand new collection of industrial drones and destruction from the founder of unseen force - who's also responsible for painted woman - released by australia's mazurka editions.

it's gloomy and overcast in brooklyn today, and these ominous compositions match that mood perfectly.

double cassette, packaged in a heavy-duty vinyl case with artwork printed on vellum paper, in an edition of only twenty-two copies.

mazurka flew under my radar for way too long, but I'm glad they were finally brought to my attention. great aesthetic and really solid sounds from unfamiliar artists...to me, at least.

these are all sold out from the label, but maybe unseen force will get a copy or two.

what unseen force does have right now, however, is a new purity of essence tape that's being billed as a "companion piece" to this set, so grab that via the link below before it's long-gone.

(buy the companion piece from unseen force.)

(buy something from mazurka editions.)

more excellence from total black, although this one was originally released on strange rule about a year ago...but great things from either label shouldn't be a surprise to anyone.

church bells, soft synths, caustic vocals, and power electronics - what more could anyone want?

this new total black version features different artwork from the original strange rules release and it's very much in line with the total black aesthetic.

all in all, an excellent release that harkens back to cremation lily's more sonically destructive origins. those power electronics tempered with false moniker's calming synths make for a really fantastic combination.

highly recommended. copies are still available from unseen force via the link below.

don't miss it.
