CORY STRAND "CULTURAL SUBORDINATION" 2CDr (AOW 32)
"Cultural Subordination" is my attempt to subvert and pay tribute to this anti-radical form of crowd control. Every track here was sourced from elements of Ellie Goulding's track "Lights," as infectious a piece of hypercolor ear rot as I've ever heard. There's a yearning and desperation buried in the track that appeals to me, and I've tried to bring those more severe emotions out in my treatments of the track. It's astounding to me just how far out these reworks can go, and how something so seemingly tepid can yield such grotesque, beautiful, and ultimately polarizing sounds. Everything you want is here, if you're willing to go deep enough.
Ellie Goulding is not the enemy.
Released by Altar Of Waste in a DVD case, in a limited edition of 5 hand-numbered copies. $15 ppd. in the United States, $23 rest of world.
