Artist: COLD CAVE
Title: Love Comes Close
Format: CD
Label: Heartworm
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Love Comes Close is the debut full-length from Cold Cave. After releasing singles on Hospital Productions, Whats Your Rupture?, and Dais Records, as well as a compilation of early material (Cremations, Hospital Productions), Cold Cave is now releasing their first realized vision of modern pop music through their own publishing house, Heartworm Press. Balance is one of Cold Caves most dominant features, laced with equal parts of romance and nihilism. Somewhere in the realms of negative hiss and out-of-body bliss, there is a peak awaiting all who enter. Wesley Eisold is joined by an orbiting line-up that includes fellow allies Caralee McElroy (of the experimental indie phenomenon Xiu Xiu), Dominick Fernow (contemporary noise icon Prurient) Max G. Morton (celebrated author) and J. Benoit. Cold Cave is a force that has been compared to Erasure and Whitehouse, one that just does what it does, without forcing unnatural laws. They are a true rarity in this instamatic culture." - Heartworm

Artist: PRURIENT
Title: Rose Pillar
Format: Hardcover Book/ 11" LP
Label: Heartworm
Country: USA
Price: $105.00
"180 Page Hardcover Book with 11" Record. What separates Dominick Fernows Prurient project from the rest of the contemporary underground cannon is its unyielding personal subject matter. From the inception of Prurient the concept has always utilized intimate details, photographs, letters and other ephemera culled from places where most artists would choose to obscure. Prurient draws these details into focus more than ever on Rose Pillar, a 180-page hardbound book of Fernows collage work and text supplied by his mother Jean Feraca from her previously published memoir I Hear Voices. Feraca tells the story of the death of Stephen, the brilliant but troubled older brother, an anthropologist who was adopted into a Sioux tribe. Feracas text is juxtaposed with Fernows collages of fallen empires, plant-life and industrial decline. The imagery presented is both stoic yet strangely profound and revealing as an analogy of death. Rose Pillar also contains an 11⿝ vinyl LP containing new material from Prurient that is the most profound and fully-realized work of his career. Prurient is not about an attack but rather a cry for help. Prurient takes the listener to the ends of human emotion as the range of sounds swell as the light of life fades. The climax of the album is the track ⿿spins the worlds wheel again⿝ which contains the most densely melodic frozen drone ever contained on a Prurient recording. Whats evidenced in these recordings is a sense of loss and destruction that cant be replaced. The sound feels more like an erosion of steady decline, ebb and flow, storms, power controlled and power unleashed. This multimedia project pries deeply through the depths of mourning on both a personal and societal scale. In conversation Prurient has exclaimed Rose Pillar to be the end of an era in both function and material. This is Prurient taken to its furthest and most satisfyingly complete conclusion. Nothing will be the same after this release as this is the ultimate result of Prurients process. Finality is a recurring theme with Rose Pillar and that says more than anything." - Heartworm.
