Carbon Records CR167

This is a set of studio and live Entente Cordiale recordings. disc 1 consists of a studio session at the Bunker in Rochester NY, recorded by Nuuj (of Pengo/Asthmatic/Tuurd). three pieces varying from the EC guitar pattern/drone approach, and ending with an on-the-edge of falling apart secular mantra before diving into the most uncharacteristic EC sounds to date (channeling the then future direction of Tumul). disc 2 consists of a long live set recorded at Soundlab in Buffalo NY, when EC (accompanied by Nuuj) opened for the Yellow Swans. a marathon blast of loud guitar riffs, drones and deep synth action. [sprayed and silkscreened 5x7 chipboard stay-flat kraft envelopes with sprayed discs]
