There are two new immune records releases right now out in Germany, last week I bought the wonderful new Micah Blue Smalldone LP “The Ring of the Rise” (in nice red yinyl), yesterday at the record store day “the Lakes of Grass and Gold / Svarte Greiner split 7”.
I like especially the Lakes of Grass and Gold track “Lament”, an amazing atomspheric drone highlight.
“Micah Blue Smaldone’s newest album, The Ring of the Rise, begins at dawn the day after his austere 2008 album, The Red River. Written and recorded in a remote corner of Northern Maine, these songs knell with excitement watching new beginnings in the world from a frozen outpost. The album features much full band accompaniment, exploring sonic reaches of early 70’s era Neil Young, or Richard and Linda Thompson’s first albums, with electric guitars and homemade tube amplifiers, as well as Micah’s familiar acoustic finger-stylings” (…)
Listen to the whole set:
