CORY STRAND "THE NATURE OF THINGS" DVD-R (AOW 220)
The companion album to "Blood Has Been Shed" trades that record's all-out violence for a seemingly infinite period of meditation and tense inner reflection. "The Nature Of Things" is a just over 5 hour deep drone excursion into thoughts of causal relationships and karmic retribution, and the attempt to reconcile meaning with absurdity. We feel the world gives us omens and harbingers, but it doesn't. Existence is coincidence; actions have consequences. For many in the "Fargo" universe, this is a lesson that is never learned, even as those same individuals experience its teachings in brutal and punishing ways. This is an epic drift, sonorous and glacial, seemingly ancient in its indifference.
Please note this is a DVD-r; you have to put it into your computer in order to extract the song. Hopefully the expansive runtime will allow you moments of personal reflection and understanding.
Packaged in a DVD case in a limited edition of 5 hand-numbered copies. $20 ppd. in the United States, $33 rest of world.
