ADAM BIEL "WHEN ALL OF THIS FINALLY STOPS" 2CDR (AOW 486)

Very pleased to be doing the physical version of this deeply melancholic, glacially droning double album from fellow Minneapolis guitarist/sound artist Adam Biel.  I got turned on to Adam's work through the collaborative cassette he did for AOW with Family Planning; this particular album, released digitally through Black Dingo Records in early 2017, is simply gorgeous and heartbreaking.  Processed and manipulated guitars create deep, enveloping, sorrowful drones on par with such luminaries as Rafael Toral and Jefre Cantu-Ledesma.  A truly lovely and magnificent album that I am very proud to be issuing through AOW.  This physical edition adds a bonus track not found on the original digital release.
The album can be streamed in its entirety here:
