Deep resonating vibrations paralyze your movement and thoughts. The mind wanders free, following the drifting electronic willow wisp. A current of sound flowing through the consciousness, grounding and energizing simultaneously. Temperament through tone pushes more to the mystical side than the despairingly mundane. Thick and heavy, Carp Lake is filled with mineral rich sonic molecules. The journey takes each listener to the tranquil ambient depths, with a beautiful sparkling lifeline always connected.
This combination of skillful creativeness is Analog, IL and Cop Funeral, bass and electronics respectively. In previous posts, Lost in a Sea of Sound has described two Cop Funeral releases. Part Time Pay / Paid Vacation on 1980 Records and 2 STRESSED 2B BLESSED on Already Dead Tapes and Records. Both on the threshold of chaos, wildly different from Carp Lake. Analog, IL is new to me, but I did investigate two previous releases on 1980 Records. Aphasia and Bones/It's Never Too Late, both in 2015 and both sold out. From listening to earlier releases from both projects, Carp Lake seems to be on a completely new path. Patience and a beautiful subtle meditative quality has been exposed. With a total time just shy of twenty minutes, this cassette will be played many times.
Released on Already Dead Tapes and Records in the second half of 2017. Copies are available from the label's bandcamp page.
