The Mylene Sheath… easily my favorite label because they hit every damn staple of awesomeness! Their releases are damn beautiful as are the people that run this small label!
Help them out by purchasing a Tour Exclusive copy of Constant’s ‘Pasiflora.’ These were unearthed about an hour ago. I’m going to skip any kind of explanation here and let you scroll down to this underrated piece of work — these copies will be gone FAST. Check it out!!
You have to feel these jackets to believe them. Super thick, tip-on style jackets (or "casewrapped") with a 4/4 full color, two sided insert and limited edition colored vinyl. SNAP!
‚ÄúAfter releasing the heaviest album of their career with 2010‚Äôs If Tomorrow The War (produced by Justin K Broadrick of Jesu/Godflesh), Constants‚Äô fifth studio album Pasiflora reveals a very different side of the band, this time with an emphasis on shoegaze and an almost retro-sensibility. Whispering vocal harmonies, walls of chorused synths and booming Peter Gabriel-esque drums coalesce into an album landing somewhere between M83 and Mew. Simply put, Pasiflora might just be their best and most creative release yet.
Late last Summer, with nine years, four critically acclaimed albums and countless international tours under their belts, the members of Constants began to feel pigeonholed into the ‚Äúpost-metal/post-rock/post-whatever‚ÄĚ scenes. So they set out to write an album that would redefine their already genre-bending sound from the outset, but it wasn‚Äôt until drummer Rob Motes presented a batch of bedroom demos that the new album really began to take shape. The group scrapped 6 months and 10 songs worth of material to embrace the vibrant and textural sound that would become Pasiflora.
‚ÄúWe aim to surprise people with every record and like to work outside of our own safe zone as much as possible. The challenge is to shape the result into a clear, consistent album,‚ÄĚ says guitarist/vocalist Will Benoit. ‚ÄúWe‚Äôre genuinely excited to have found something fresh at a point in our timeline where most bands become stagnant.‚ÄĚ Pasiflora was self-produced in Benoit‚Äôs Radar Studios (Junius, Caspian) ‚Äď New England‚Äôs first and only Solar-Powered recording facility ‚Äď and co-mixed by Daryl Rabidoux (Bad Rabbits, The Cancer Conspiracy). The album will see a release worldwide on July 24th, via The Mylene Sheath."
