Monoliths & Dimensions: falta uma semana

O novo e bem guardado álbum dos gigantes Sunn O))) sai dia 18 de Maio. De forma a criar (ainda mais) expectativa vou postar uma crítica por dia. Entretanto, na SL é possível encomendar o dito cujo com tshirtzinha ou sweat. Aqui vai a primeira (NME):

SUNN O)))s M&D opus is birthed. sunn100. You can now order the album via Southern Lord on CD format (vinyl release TBA, probably late summer). Also available are some tshirts & hoodies featuring qlipothic art via Timo Ketola (also present on the CD layout), all art directed by yours truly. Please note that all CD & vinyl versions of the album contain the same tracklist & mixes, there are no bonus audio materials for this album. The SLR jewelcase CD version is a great package and tactile experience with vellum stocks & ocard. Japanese edition, again by Daymare, is beautifully and elaborately packaged in a mini-gatefold LP package with oversized vellum obi, 4 "art cards" and a poster. The bonus material on the Japanese version this time is "bonus artwork".

We are preparing tours as a 4 and 5 piece in support of this opus. Attila Csihar and Steve Moore will be in the ranks as well as a yet undecided 5th member for some shows. Randall Dunn will be on the big guns.

SUNN O))) "Monoliths & Dimensions" tours 2009

Midwest USA July 2-12
West coast USA August 5-11
East coast/Southeast USA September 18-30
Middle & East Europe/Scandinavia October 17 - Nov 1st

There should also be UK and Japan jaunts following those pieces. We are working on it, more to come.

We are also considering and contemplating a few special event concerts with an expanded acoustic ensemble lineup. This is a whole different ballgame but may be in the cards and we have a few loyal partners in Europe on board to help manifest if/when the time is correct.

We're proud of the huge accomplishments and results of this intensively ambitious, challenging and difficult album. I think that all we have done with our music to date has led up to this piece of work, its a great evocation of the spirit and essence of what SUNN O))) is/was/shall be over the years. The living music. And its really a gift to the real deep listeners. Enjoy.

Thanks in advance for the interest and support! To old & new fans, diehards and curious newcomers alike! Old and new collaborators, this album is for all of you!

Como escolhem eles UMA música de um album dos Sunn O))) para ouvir?

At 12.5.09, Blogger ::Andre:: said...

Porque é a NME, tá tudo dito. Eles tão habituados a ter música de plástico, e quando lhes aparece um ÁLBUM no verdadeiro sentido da palavra.... Enfim, achei piada ao facto de eles terem criticado, é bom para os Sunn chegarem a todo lado.

Cheira bem :)

Eu julgo que vou sacar e depois comprar o LP. Vai ter de ser.

E sim, a pergunta era retória, é prática corrente da NME.
