Yet More on Locrian...

I can barely keep up with these guys. This is from Dusted's "Still Single" feature, written by Doug Mosurock:

“Plague Journal” b/w “Apocryphal City, Portents Fallen” 7”

Two sides of atmospheric post-industrial drone for guitar and machines. There’s a picture of a wind-damaged storefront on the insert, which makes a lot of sense, I suppose. Synths and loops and oscillators provide the background, noise and scrape, while the guitar scratches out a few melodic blues riffs. Pretty nice take on what can sometimes be a tough thing to bring across on vinyl without sounding overwrought. 300 copies, white vinyl, white sleeve.
