About Stephen O'Malley:
Participant in the following acts: Sunn O))), Ktl, Gravetemple, Æthenor, Ginnungagap, Lotus Eaters, L.A.M.F., and various collaborations. The Kindertotenlieder theatre piece by Gisèle Vienne & Dennis Cooper. Previously involved with Khanate, Burning Witch, Thorr's Hammer, Black Mass, Black Horizon, Sarin, Ceremonium, Kuboaah, Bigg Dogg, etc.
Latest in the Tapeworm series of super limited cassette releases, the first two were from Philip Jeck (now sold out) and Jean Baudrillard (not really Baudrillard, but a reading of his work), but this one might be the most anticipated, which makes the fact that we were only able to get only 10 copies even that much more of a bummer.
So yeah, a tiny handful of you will get lucky and will snag one of these, a gorgeous sidelong dronescape from Stephen O'Malley (of SUNNO))), KTL, Gravetemple, Aethenor, Ginnungagap, Lotus Eaters, Khanate, Burning Witch, Thorr's Hammer among others), buzzing rumbling guitars, throbbing low end, delicate shimmer, haunting field recordings, music from an art installation, gorgeous stuff, without even noticing, we listened to it 4 or 5 times in a row, the tape flipping over and over, and we could have listened to it 5 more times!
