Artist: DARK SUNNY LAND
Title: Emanations For A Returning
Format: LP
Label: One Hand
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"The latest from Dark Sunny Land, Emanations for a Returning, will be available from One Hand Records hq in August. Over the last decade Bostons Steve Painter, under various monikers, has quietly released a number of killer CDs on Gulcher that seemed to earn him high praise from the handful who heard them. Most enthusiastically touted by the great, long-running zine turned blog, Black to Comm, check out the fine interview with Steve Painter that appeared there. Emanations is four tracks of Painters uneasy, claustrophobic feedback and drone that are reminiscent of trailblazers Kluster and Taj Mahal Travelers. Painter calls his music “cranky ambient.” Recorded in the shadows of Fenway Park, this is an excellent late-night comedown listen. Emanations is the first Dark Sunny Land release to appear on vinyl. Silk screened covers. Edition of 150 copies." - One Hand.

"Do try and search out the delightful and highly useful EMANATIONS FOR A RETURNING by Bostons Dark Sunny Land. Released on One Hand Records, this limited vinyl edition shakes and sparkles with that same shimmer as Japanese Gagaku ceremonies, all Timeless and Hazy and Almost and Nearly. Its probably those singing bowls that throw time off so, or perhaps the household objects, or maybe even the subtly rendered Theremin. Indeed, Im loathe to compare this vinyl LP with anything too specific, for it is entirely itself. Yes, the music of Dark Sunny Land occupies mostly a peculiar heat haze hinterland, a semi-permanent perch that always appears to threaten a massive increase in volume, but never does. But EMANATIONS FOR A RETURNING is a fine LP housed in a delightful art sleeve, and it dont half endlessly repeat well, Motherfuckers." - Julian Cope.

“Bostons great loner cosmic tones pusher turns in 4 new tracks of his signature drift. This is beautiful, melt-into-your-couch stuff. Dark Sunny Land is Steve Painters 3rd album as DSL, and continues his pursuit of the sound from a yet to be discovered planet. Painter cites Sun Ra, Kluster, and Basinski as influences, and you hear them all here, but at this point--Painter is now a sexagenarian--he has developed a sound that is unmistakably his own. The albums closer, "Kangaroo Daydream," is the most gorgeous piece he has produced yet. It finishes too soon, not so much ending as vaporizing and ascending into the stratosphere.” - One Hand.

Hand numbered edition of 150 copies.

"First biggo surprise of 15s this new longplayer courtesy the mostly-MIA for 14 Stephen Painter a.k.a. Dark Sunny Land. Hes back with that ol proverbial vengeance on this un which thankfully continues on the spacial avant musical sounds of the past which in many ways are the logical extension of what all this rock n roll was heading in the first place. From K/Cluster-esque cranks to warm encapsulating sound that you can burrow yourself into, DARK SUNNY LAND weaves itself into your very own nerve-endings with a music that, once you spin the thing repeatedly for a few hours, makes you wanna stand up and holler that this was made for you and you alone! And in some ways you may be right Snuggle up with an old issue of CREEM while this un spins brightly throughout these Artic nights." --Chris Stigliano, Blog to Comm.
