Planning For Burial & Lonesummer Split CD

CD release from Music Ruins Lives limited to 100 copies – fairly certain that they’re flying off the shelf at a staggering rate and I am not at all surprised, so be quick!

Planning For Burial spin the kind of melancholy usually reserved for distant memories and far away places. A shoegaze muddle of organs and Jesu like keyboard arrangements, Planning For Burial tread the line somewhere between the blissed, trip-hop attitude of Portishead and Nadja’s obsession with drone. Captivating, melodic warps as the musics fray and expand. Perfect music for that winter afternoon when the sun shows itself for a hazy five minute interval.

Lonesummer is a lot noisier, and consequentially a lot more interesting. Loud, noisy, unrelenting and amalgamated by a wall of a feedback. All I can compare it to is Bone Awl covering a Liturgy track. Yes, it feels quite black metal. ‘I Wish I Could Delete Last Night’ brings a greater sense of direction to the split. Truly tormented, lo-fi black metal that might resemble Neige’s recent output if he wasn’t fucking french.

Great split release from a one-to-watch label. Recommended if you enjoy the more emotive side of your musical escapades. Available through Music Ruins Lives now.

You'll find me in the vast wilderness of British Columbia, talking metal at LURKER, or working in publishing and front-end web/eBook development.

    This split is great, the PFB songs sort of remind me of Arab Strap.. which is a wonderful thing.
