Spoken arts label Cadabra Records presents H. P. LOVECRAFT’s Hallowe’en In A Suburb And Others as part of the label’s ongoing series in homage to the author, and ahead of its April release, now unveils two tracks from the demoniac release through an exclusive with Bloody-Disgusting.
“Hallowe’en In A Suburb” is a classic by H. P. LOVECRAFT staple, and has been frequently reprinted over the years since its initial publication in 1926. To be released as a limited edition 7”, and playing today alongside the poem is “The Cats,” giving curious listeners a brief foretaste of the eerie ways of the EP.
Tune in and hear the poetry of H. P. LOVECRAFT’s “Hallowe’en In A Suburb” and “The Cats” at Bloody-Disgusting, RIGHT HERE.
Bearing a total of seven poems, in addition to its title track and “Cats,” Hallowe’en In A Suburb And Others also bears the rhymes of “The Garden,” “Festival,” “Astrophobos,” “Despair,” and “The Messenger.” As with the other titles in the ongoing Cadabra series, the seven poems are here read by Andrew Leman, who is known as a co-founder of the H. P. LOVECRAFT Historical Society, as well as a professional actor with years of stage, screen, and audio performances including The Call of Cthulhu, The Whisperer in Darkness, and Dark Adventure Radio Theatre. Leman’s voice captures the terror, dread, suspense and madness that permeates LOVECRAFT‘s writing, and is here appropriately paired with sound by Josh Coy of Teratoma Sound Lab, the release bound in cover artwork by Sam Heimer.
Cadabra Records will release Hallowe’en In A Suburb And Others on April 29th as a limited 7” on clear vinyl, in an edition of 150 copies. The cover will be hand-screened in silver ink on a fold-over cover, printed on French paper, and includes an insert. Preorders have been posted HERE.
Cadabra Records’ ongoing H. P. LOVECRAFT series recently began with the release of the maiden title in the series, The Hound & The Music Of Erich Zann, released on LP in February. Upon its release, the label announced New York-based dark ambient/industrial outfit Theologian has been chosen as the label’s “house band” for all upcoming titles, including the absolutely terrifying, The Lurking Fear, the next title in the series, to be followed by Pickman’s Model and other titles soon to be announced.
