In the works for months and finally seeing the light of day, this recording unites shoegaze ultra-minimalists Planning For Burial with shoegaze maximalists Dreamless for a distinct and reverent take on a female artist of each band's choosing.  Planning For Burial tackles two songs by gloom-folk chanteuse Chelsea Wolfe while Dreamless turns in a cover of '90s pop temptress Jewel.  Both bands stay true to their established templates, with the hushed and delicate nighttime fragility of Planning For Burial's contributions bleeding in to the crushing bulk of Dreamless's purification through volume aesthetics.  A beautiful split by two bands who essentially comprise two sides of the same coin.
Altar Of Waste is pleased to present this alliance in homage; through reinterpretation and imitation both projects illuminate their own processes and obsessions.  Packaged in a DVD case with two different covers, in a limited edition of 30 hand-numbered copies.  $10 ppd. in the United States, $22 rest of world.


*If you would prefer a particular cover (either the Chelsea cover or the Jewel cover) please let me know in the "Comments" section of your Paypal order and I will do my best to accomodate you.  No guarantees, though!
