BH-73 - Barren Harvest - Beautiful Flowers 3 x 7"
"They invent a howling theatrical language through which it becomes possible to express the grief of the whole world. A language understood by no one but the two of them."
Brooding, minimal, and dark yet beautiful songs from the duo of Jessica Way (Worm Ouroboros) and Lenny Smith (Atriarch), here with 6 tracks, one for each side, of their earliest recordings. Many overlapping tracks with the Handmade Birds release, but a more stripped down and raw recording that suits these tracks well. Delicate and sorrowful vocals, ominous synth and exquisite guitar. Flower art by Lorraine Rath (Worm Ouroboros) and owl photography by Myles Donovan (Disemballerina). Edition of 333 copies. All printing is in silver ink on black linen stock. Each 7" comes in it's own inner sleeve with an insert, and there is a drop card of the owl art. Two slips make up the exterior, one vertical one horizontal. 100 copies are on light gray swirl color vinyl in an artist edition, with an additional vellum envelope made by Jessica, containing pressed roses, and hand written with the dead wax quote. The remaining 233 copies are on black vinyl. Black inner sleeves. Silver center labels on black.
