CORY STRAND "OBLIVION ADORNED" CDr (AOW 159)
"Oblivion Adorned" is crafted from acoustic and electric guitar elements found on the tape and is the more gentle of the two new albums, easily categorized as one my "pretty" efforts. Darkly ambient, the two tracks here cradle themselves in deep, echoed grey tones and bizarrely lovely, blurgazey type textures that recall Tim Hecker (one of my idols, if you couldn't tell by now) with a hint of the metallized kosmiche found on "Adorning Oblivion." The two albums are meant to function together, but either are enjoyable on their own.
Packaged in a DVD case in a limited edition of 5 hand-numbered copies. $10 ppd. in the United States, $23 rest of world.
