With a Stolen Red Lipstick Bible on Her Side

October 26th, 2009 | music

I am greatly fond of Natural Snow Buildings, an experimental/postrock unit from France. And last.fm has a bunch of their stuff for free download. Good old last.fm — don’t know how it’s taken this long to root through their free-mp3 archive. Here’s the page you can grab this track from. It has superficial resemblances to, say, the peak work of Godspeed You! Black Emperor: but instead of GY!BE’s ascents (or perhaps escalantes, if you’re Matt Webb), they produce zones, spaces, still fields. Good night music. (And it’s dark here in Britain.)

If you go to Brian Wood’s flickr stream right now, you’ll find the first five pages of his new NORTHLANDERS sequence, THE PLAGUE WIDOW.
