Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Asunder, Sweet & Other DistressVendor: Constellation
NEW VINYL LP ON CONSTELLATION 2015
180 GRAM VINYL + ART POSTER
e thought we'd lost them forever but here they are with their first single length album since their very earliest days. Recorded in late 2013/14 with Greg Norman (not the golfer but the Electrical Audio engineer), 'Asunder, Sweet and other Distress' is described as Godspeed's most focussed and best sounding record to date. Clocking in at an anaemic (for them) 40 minutes, all the usual touchstones are in place, so expect enormo-crescendos, strings and guitars in glorious unison and exhilarating noise and drone explorations. For those with an interest in stats, track count is at 4 this time whilst exclamation mark total is at a lowly 2.
A1 Peasantry or ‘Light! Inside of Light!’
