Cadabra Records presents H. P. LOVECRAFT‘s Hallowe’en In A Suburb And Others, as a limited edition 7″ title, set for release this April as part of the label’s ongoing series in homage to the author.
The poem Hallowe’en In A Suburb is a classic, staple title by H. P. LOVECRAFT, and has been frequently reprinted over the years since its initial publication in 1926. Here, the rhyme is joined by several other tales including The Cats, The Garden, Festival, Astrophobos, Despair, and The Messenger.
As with the other titles in the ongoing Cadabra series, these 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.
Spoken arts label, Cadabra Records, will release Hallowe’en In A Suburb And Others on April 29th as a limited 7″ title, which is currently being pressed 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 will be posted on March 24th.
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.
