CORY STRAND "I GUESS YOU'D CALL IT SUICIDE" C90 (AOW 340)
Massive cassette of despondent and suicidal drone ambience, despairingly sad and dense with sorrow. I recorded this cassette a number of months ago and was astonished at how aching and empty it was...at times it is difficult for me to listen to, and with the personal issues i've been experiencing of late revisiting it has been somewhat painful and terrifying. But it is beautiful, and maybe it will provide comfort to some others who are hurting as well.
Four towering drone compositions alongside a slowcore/Tim Hecker style cover of the Police's "Every Breath You Take." Music to slice your wrists open to. Listen to with headphones, alone in the dark, at high volume.
Released in a limited edition of 10 hand-numbered copies. $10 ppd. in the United States, $26 rest of world.
