€15.00 Sold out
„Sower of Wind“ isn’t a companion record to Utopioid per se, but shares the same four-part cyclic structure, referencing seasons, cardinal directions, times of day. Each track draws inspiration and source material from the corresponding quadrant of Utopioid, but uses it to tell a different story. It’s a more peaceful, primordial listen than its older brother, without vocals or percussion, drawing tension from the interplay of acoustic instruments and washed-out drones. It’s great turned up loud, and even better on headphones in the dark.
„Sower of Wind“ was recorded at home in bits and pieces, through late 2017 and 2018. „It was mixed in part on tour, taking advantage of the fertile bed of ideas that comes with long- term close quarters, and the sleeplessness of non-stop transit. It’s a labor of love for us — very different from our normal sonic presentation, but equally representative of who we are (and who we’re becoming) as a band“, Weed comments.
