A snowshell, a coat — a snows hell, chapped. On the Snowshell EP, Devin Friesen (of Bitter Fictions) continues his parallel foray into tape decay + concrète sounds under his given initials, refining the process of last year’s Pitch Dark cassette into more concise pieces. This is music borne of & for snow: three pieces recorded in the dead of a prairie winter, ready for headphone trudges across ice and/or a contemplative night trying to warm up at home. The initials remain as an appreciative nod to M.B. (Maurizio Bianchi), though Snowshell finds Friesen exploring analog tape decay on his own terms-- the throbbing snaps of “Candlewax” to the drum machine hangover of “Exhaust,” all back to the strange warmth of the title exploration.

Recorded & decomposed by D.F. in the Library Basement, November 2013

"Atmospheric noise drift, softened by decaying tape. Some pretty great stuff that sounds like it could be nestled somewhere between Kye Records' catalog and now defunct Montreal label Fadeaway Tapes." -- CJSW
