CORY STRAND "GUMMO III: FULL OF BEAUTY AND ILLUSIONS" 3CDR (AOW 407)
A return to the nihilistic scorched earth of Harmony Korine's Gummo, this time using all of the tracks from the film that were not included on the official OST release. This is maybe the absolute bleakest of my three Gummo reworks to date, a massive exploration of grey ambience and droning wall crushery that threatens to overwhelm at every moment. Truly fucking monolithic and despairing, and shot through with the occasional rare moment of eerie, transfixing beauty. I think this is one of the best projects i've done in awhile; with beautiful minimalist artwork.
Packaged in a heavy fold-over cover, with each of the three discs in a black sleeve, and the entire set housed in a clear plastic bag. Released in a limited edition of 5 hand-numbered copies. $20 ppd. in the United States, $36 rest of world.
