Words and things, mostly words.
Because last month was so expensive — thanks to the holidays and life in general — I didn’t really buy much music, except for the physical edition of The Project Hate MCMXCIX‘s most recent album, Death Ritual Covenant. According to a Facebook update from Lord K, I should be receiving my copy in the mail within the next week or so. I can’t wait for it to show up; I’m just hoping I don’t have to deal with any postal shenanigans or delays. I also bought the latest full-length (link) from Youth Team, an electronic artist I found via a random plug from Twitter user @maplecocaine.
This month, I picked up 2 pre-orders, Saor‘s Forgotten Paths (link) and Waldgeflüster‘s Mondscheinsonaten (link) and the debut LP from Arête, Hymnal (link | review). I’m really enjoying the previewed tracks from Saor, including the title track — which features Neige from Alcest — and Waldgeflüster have impressed me ever since discovering the project via a split EP released with Panopticon (link | link).
