TWO NEW COLD SPRING RELEASES – OUT 11th APRIL

ANDREW CHALK, RALF WEHOWSKY & ERIC LANZILLOTTA ‘YANG-TUL‘ CD (CSR220CD)

A legendary sound collaboration formed of two lengthy pieces. The first track features Andrew Chalk (Mirror, Ora, Ferial Confine) gently reworking the sound materials of Ralf Wehowsky (P16.D4). A hypnotic, slowly-evolving drone with waves of mysterious sounds, static and glitches. The second piece, on the other hand, finds Ralf Wehowsky composing a frenzied journey into otherworldly realms using sound material from Andrew Chalk and Eric Lanzillotta (Eye Music). These pieces reflect a sound unique from the work of any of the three individual participants, but clearly related. Subtle, but full of detail for the willing listener. Originally issued as limited coloured vinyl only on Lanzillotta’s label Anomalous Records in 1998. Cover painting by Andrew Chalk. Remastered for CD from the original master recordings. Digipak.

Tracks: 1. Wycha (21:39), 2. Chalawy (18:04)

Barcode: 0641871744701

COMMON EIDER, KING EIDER ‘EXTINCTION‘ CD (CSR219CD)

A new ritual from this long running doom/drone/ambient collective, offering up modern manifestations of ancient energies, channelled into smouldering swathes of ceremonial hypnosis and explosive gouts of blood-red radiance. Extinction is an extended ceremonial rite conducted below ground at the Wisp House (R.I.P.). A song suite of psychedelic devotionals assembled from reverb drenched industrial drones, billowing clouds of metallic throb, and churning, rhythmic bombast. Fields of ghostly incantations suspended in the ether, draped over metallic murmurs and moaning melancholia. The low end rumble of monk-like chants beneath the soft tangle of keening lamentation. A slowly evolving sensory sacrament, tense and harrowing, punctuated by dense dramatic swells and aching, mournful mantras.

Tracks: 1. Extinction (11:27), 2. Black Bough (8:07), 3. Crystalline Shores (9:16), 4. A Wisp Of Smoke, And Salem Burns (12:36)

Barcode: 0641871744695
