House Sparrow Settle Back
Limited Edition of 100 Cassettes & Digital Download
Utilising and processing various found tapes, field recordings and synth, the collaborative pairings weave two glistening threads of kitchen sink psychedelia, all shimmering silver evening light, warbled bird song, tape loop stretch, green moss scent, static hiss, morning hum, ritual, reflection, refraction, ferric slip, whirling wind, skittering clatter, metallic scrape, essential throb, golden flux…
Such monumental themes as existential concern, environmental stability, ecological cohabitation, the role of the Individual and the Collective, and spiritual transcendence are spun from the complex layering and deft manipulation of the humblest of sound sources.
House Sparrow Settle Back is released as a limited edition of 100 hand-numbered professionally dubbed cassettes and digital download via the Crow Versus Crow Bandcamp on Friday 12th July 2019. The cassette version is dubbed onto a white shell cassette with gold and pink A/B identifying stickers, housed in a recycled plastic sleeve with A6 postcard featuring artwork by Crow Versus Crow. Each copy is individually hand numbered. Each copy comes with a limited edition 25mm metallic badge.
