We are happy to reissue Kjsotad’s “Glacial Lake,” which was originally issued as a tape on No Rent Records in 2018 and quickly sold out. This pro-CD is packaged in a 4-panel digipack and includes new artwork.
Original label description: After releases on New Forces, Found Remains and Prime Ruin, Kjostad gives us Glacial Lake, the project’s best work to date. Ranging from contemplative to pummeling, these place-based recordings were composed with sounds captured in the woods of northern Minnesota along the shores of Kjostad lake. Primal atmospheres create a pedestal for blazoned electronics to be manipulated with colossal menace. This is real noise; containing the beauty of nature almost accidentally, while wearing terror on its sleeve. Micro-density, macro-density, moments thicken the plot while the whole moves stoically and circuitously.
Glacial Lake is a refreshing Walden-esque vision of American noise.
