Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album
SBM011CD: an expanded reissue of Devin Friesen's gtr feedback & tape decay release "Snowshell", originally issued in a quickly sold out edition of twenty-five lathe cut records. This collection includes the three lathe tracks and adds six more tape decay pieces; a full extra LP's worth of material, recorded & decomposed by D.F. through winter & spring 2013/14 in the library basement, calgary, ab.
Includes unlimited streaming of Tape Decay Works (winter/spring 13/14)
via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
Additional tape decay pieces from D.F., about half recorded during the same period as the Snowshell record, and half in the spring afterwards. These six new pieces, along with the three original lathe tracks, will be included in the Snowshell (expanded) CD.
Thick guitar feedback stretches across the horizon, muddied by analog decay processing and cheap cassette mixing. Drum machines leave further mildew stains on "Down Way Low" and the weighty "Return of the Raiders", while otherwise lighting the way through bleak stretches of "Bamboo Murder City". It's 'dance music for being totally empty, just a hollow drag', sez D.F.
"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
