Crow Versus Crow is incredibly proud to present Moonmilk Roof, the debut release from free music collective, Three Eyed Makara – a revolving ensemble led by Natalia Beylis and Willie Stewart; both of whom are members of Woven Skull and Divil A' Bit.

From within a forest set deep in the Irish countryside, Three Eyed Makara channel the sounds of mythical creatures battling in the stirred silt of the ocean floor; velvet antlers lock; tail fins flicker; pine scent; oak sap; heaving giants thrashing at the threshold, third eye blinking.

In this recording, Three Eyed Makara is Willie (Woven Skull, Divil A' Bit / percussion) and Natalia (Woven Skull, Natalia Beylis, Divil A' Bit / Mandobird, electronics), Ailbhe Nic Oireachtaigh (Cian Nugent / viola), Djuna Keen (Ludo Mich / saxophone).

Moonmilk Roof  is released as a limited edition of 100 professionally dubbed cream-shelled cassettes, with full colour labels, wrapped in a full colour extended J-card, hand-numbered and housed in a cream cassette case. and digital download.

New Release: Alocasia Garden - Colony (Crow Versus Crow, 2017)



Alocasia Garden
Colony
Crow Versus Crow
(CVC005)
Limited Edition of 50 cassettes & digital download

Order now via the Crow Versus Crow Bandcamp

Crow Versus Crow is incredibly proud to present Colony, the latest release from Alocasia Garden, alias of Folkstone (UK) -based experimental artist Reece Thomas Green.

Startlingly prolific, Colony is Alocasia Garden’s 20th full-length release since the project’s inception in 2014 - following previous cassettes on such esteemed labels as Sacred Tapes, Vanity Pill and Strange Rules.

Written and recorded in June 2016, using contact mics, ride symbol, synth and two 4-track tape recorders, Colony expands upon an established, highly personal aesthetic, specifically exploring more confrontational, harsher textures in stark contrast to experimentations with more open, spacious elements within the delicately layered compositions.

Rooted in the historical lineage of Industrial Noise music, yet eschewing any associated machismo and posturing, with Alocasia Garden, Reece Thomas Green manages to deftly imbue his textured, almost tactile, compositions with a sense of poignancy – a highly emotive, intrinsically human expression extracted from the most inhuman of sources. Piercing screeches and anthropomorphic feedback snarls give way to sustained tones, echoing fizzes and flowing mechanical gurgles, coagulating to evoke dystopian landscapes; battered, collapsed but not hopeless.

Colony is released as a limited edition of 50 professionally dubbed white-shelled cassettes, with full colour labels, wrapped in a full colour extended j-card, housed in a clear plastic case, and digital download.
