Artist: TROPIC OF CANCER
Title: Restless Idylls
Format: CD
Label: Blackest Ever Black
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"Restless Idylls is the first full-length album from Tropic Of Cancer, the solo project of Los Angeles-based Camella Lobo. Lobo debuted in 2009 with The Dull Age/Victims, a 10" single on Downwards and the first of three collaborations with Juan Mendez (Silent Servant). Two years later came a second Downwards release ("Be Brave," remixed by Cabaret Voltaires Richard H. Kirk), followed soon after by The Sorrow of Two Blooms on Blackest Ever Black -- the labels third release and one if its most cherished. Since then there have been 12" releases on Mannequin, Sleeperhold Publications, Ghostly International (a Part Time Punks Sessions live split with HTRK) and a limited edition compilation, The End of All Things, compiling singles and unreleased recordings. Restless Idylls marks TOCs return to BEB and consists of eight new recordings written in Los Angeles, with additional production from Karl OConnor (Regis) in New York and London. Its themes? The usual: romance, devotion, pain and helplessness. Mixed up mortals struggling against the brute mechanics of fate, and proving unequal to the task. A forced retreat into private, precious idylls of longing, faith, mystery, even misery. The urgent motorik of lead single "More Alone" is perhaps a misleading foretaste of the full-length, which is more lush, languid and extravagantly despondent than previous TOC material. Troubled hymns from an empty room, in a drowned world. A sensual and sepulchral psychedelia. Cover art by Silent Editions." - Blackest Ever Black

Artist: TROPIC OF CANCER
Title: The Sorrow of Two Blooms
Format: 12"
Label: Blackest Ever Black
Country: UK
Price: $19.00
"2011 release. One-time repress on clear vinyl with the original picture sleeve, edition of 500. Tropic Of Cancer is the L.A.-based duo of Camella Lobo and Juan Mendez (Silent Servant). "A Color" is a soaring cold wave anthem, wailing synths and dead-eyed vocals riding an insistent, minimalist drum pattern that channels Stephen Morris, Mo Tucker, and early Cure. "Temporal Vessels" invokes Hannetts gloomiest productions. With shades of Nico, Cocteau Twins, and the finest 80s dream-pop, "Dive (Wheel of the Law)" takes up the entire B-side." -Blackest Ever Black.
