Newly launched vinyl imprint, Corpse Flower Records, is pleased to unveil the stunning limited edition vinyl pressing of HELEN MONEY‘s critically-lauded third full-length, Arriving Angels.
Initially released on Profound Lore Records earlier this year, Arriving Angels was recorded by iconoclastic sound sage Steve Albini at Electrical Audio Studio, mastered by Collin Jordan at Boiler Room and embraces any number of sounds and references — organic, ambient doom Ã la SunnO))), prismatic noise/post-rock evoking Sonic Youth and Rachel’s, new-music minimalism spanning GÃ³recki to Branca, sinister orchestral trills that would make Bernard Herrman pause — all the while becoming none of them, creating a new whole out of HELEN MONEY (that is, Alison Chesley)’s distinct point of view. While HELEN MONEY has traditionally consisted of Chesley performing primarily solo, on Arriving Angels she’s joined on various tracks by Neurosis drummer/percussionist Jason Roeder who provides the album’s revelation, taking HELEN MONEY‘s sound, already ominous and penetrating, into unheard dimensions of power.
Arriving Angels features gorgeous artwork and design by Stephan Byram and will be available in a limited pressing of 300 copies on orange wax. Order your copy today at THIS LOCATION.
