NASH, BEN - The Seventh Goodbye
Vinyl debut for long term Blackest Rainbow brother Ben... Im extremly\r\nhappy with this one. 8 tracks, 34 minutes. Opening with a reworking of\r\nKUAD 9873 from his Blackest Rainbow debut cassette... bleak drones\r\nsmothered in vocal lulling, and finishing with a sweet guitar piece\r\nswirling in a lake of percussion, vocal and drone. Nightcall shows a\r\nmore middle eastern psychedelic droning, bowing, wailing, and satanic\r\nmutterings. Track 3 is the title track The Seventh Goodbye, and is\r\nthe most full band approach of Bens acoustic psychedelic folk jams,\r\nbut this blurs into sax blurts, waves of melancholic vocal drone and\r\nwrithing riffery. Perhaps similar to Voice of the Seven Woods or Six\r\nOrgans of Admittance. Side B opener Smoke and Flattery is the most\r\nexperimental - multi percussion, echoes of whispers, finger grating\r\nguitars. Magnetophon Pt IV is not Bens recent Sloow Tape of a\r\nsimilar name, but a bluesy haze LSD dream, building into a drenched\r\necstatic guitar drone. Following this is What Will Always Be Pt.II\r\nwhich is reminiscent of Jack Rose, or James Blackshaw, the most\r\nbeautiful composition on the LP. This bleeds into the final\r\nsurrealness of Angel No. 7 field recordings, bleak, fearful and\r\nempty. Im honoured to release this gem. Limited to 250 hand numbered\r\ncopies on virgin vinyl, with black, white and red pasted on covers,\r\nplus a black and white insert. All artwork designed by Darryl Norsen\r\nwho designed our (VxPxC) sleeve, and done a few beauties for\r\nImportant records, as well as posters for Sunburned, Six Organs, Hush\r\nArbors, Magik Markers and more. - Blackest Rainbow.
