Drophead vs. Silent Land Time Machine
From Ashes Comes the Day (HD020/DH005)
OUT 10/14/14 – VINYL (300) / TAPE (200) / DL (∞)
We are proud to announce that the long-awaited collaboration between Silent Land Time Machine (aka HOLODECK co-founder Jonathan Slade) & Drophead (Montréal’s Eric Craven, best known for his drumming in Constellation Records’ bands Hangedup & HRSTA) is now shipping worldwide! Out in an edition of 300 vinyl EP’s with hand silkscreened covers, and 200 chrome-plus, professionally dubbed, laser-imprinted cassettes with thick chipboard j-cards with art beautifully designed (and silk-screened) by Montréal-based visual & sound artist Nick Kuepfer.
…and some kind words for From Ashes Comes the Day:
“…a single piece of music created from interwoven ideas that are paraded across the sensory field like sonic vignettes. The music unfurls across two sides of vinyl in emotive bursts that are at times barely detectable and at others devastatingly present. The collaborative spirit that these two share, given that they reside over 3000 km from each other, is invigorating.“
– 8/10, Exclaim!
“Melodic phrases from both camps accumulate into a low-hanging vapor and recede as the molecules tug to separate into their most basic textural elements.” – Tiny Mix Tapes
