RIYL: Carl Hultgren, Windy Weber
It was announced not too long ago by the prolific husband and wife duo that they would no longer be performing live (at least on a consistent basis) due to Windy’s hearing damage, I believe. I can’t seem to locate the Facebook post where they said this… That is unfortunate, but it would’ve been a tragedy on par with her hearing damage if they announced they were going to stop making music – they said, in this same Facebook post (that I remember, at least), that they’d continue forward despite this. Windy & Carl are one of my favorite bands going, and I don’t believe they get enough credit. All of their work is honeyed, whether the track’s mood has a disposition of darkness or brightness. If you want to introduce somebody to the power of drone/post-rock, they’re a great recommendation. Both tracks on this tape will amount to an hour in play time, and this is the first time both tracks are being released in an unedited format. One saw release for Life Like Tapes in 2014, and the other on Geographic North this year – but edited. Come January 1st, you can welcome in the new year the right way – blissed out. On top of that, each of these cassette covers will be unique as they’re all hand-painted by Windy herself. Listen to a preview of “Godzilla Of Snow” below via the Bandcamp player and see what you think of it. Cheers!
We are kicking off 2017 with the 1st of several planned releases for the new year. This (Blue Flea 022) is a limited edition cassette tape featuring 2 long songs of music perfectly suited for the cold & snowy winter months.
"GODZILLA OF SNOW" is a previously unreleased, unedited full length mix (an edited version was released in January 2014 by Life Like Tapes in an edition of 30 copies). "WITCH & A CAULDRON" is also a previously unreleased, unedited full length mix (an edited version was released in October 2016 for the GEOGRAPHIC NORTH Cassette "Death on the Hour: Aural Apparitions from the Geographic North which was limited to 100 copies)
Tapes will be 60 minutes long, with full program running on each side.
THIS WILL BE RELEASED ON JANUARY 1st, 2017
THIS CASSETTE RELEASE IS A LIMITED EDITION OF 150 COPIES (HAND NUMBERED & INDIVIDUALLY HAND PAINTED ARTWORK BY WINDY)
