More Info

180g Vinyl im Gatefold Cover! Inklusive 24"x24" Poster und DL Coupon! Luciferian Towers", das siebte Album der Kanadier GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR, wurde im Winter 2016/2017 im Hotel2Tango Studio in Montreal aufgenommen. Greg Norman bernahm wie bereits beim Vorgngeralbum ,Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress" das Engeneering und die Co-Produktion. Der Sound des Albums hat sich in den vergangenen zwei Jahren herausgeschlt, mageblichen Einfluss daran hatte die gleichzeitige Kooperation mit der Tanzgruppe HOLY BODY TATTOO, sowie der Auftrag zu einer Komposition zum 100jhrigen Gedenken der Schlacht bei Messines, welche im Juni letzten Jahres in Belgien auf dem Gelnde des Massakers in Heuvelland ihre Premiere feierte. "Luciferian Towers" ist zudem das dritte Album von GY!BE seit der ,Reunion" der Band 2011 und die zweite aufeinanderfolgende Einzel-LP - denen drei Doppel-Alben (2000, 2002 und 2012) vorangingen. Neben den einzelnen Track-Beschreibungen gibt die Band dazu noch das folgende Statement ab: "this long-playing record, a thing we made in the midst of communal mess, raising dogs and children. eyes up and filled with dreadful joy - we aimed for wrong notes that explode, a quiet muttering amplified heavenward. we recorded it all in a burning motorboat." 1. UNDOING A LUCIFERIAN TOWERS - look at that fucking skyline! big lazy money writ in dull marble obelisks! imagine all those buildings much later on, hollowed out and strippe d bare of wires and glass, listen- the wind is whistling through all 3,000 of its burning window-holes! 2. BOSSES HANG - labor, alienated from the wealth it creates, so that holy cow, most of us live precariously! kicking at it, but barely hanging on! also - the proud illuminations of our shortened lives! also - more of us than them! also - what we need now is shovels, wells, and barricades! 3. FAM / FAMINE - how they kill us = absentee landlord, burning high-rise. the loud panics of child-policemen and their exploding trigger-hands. with the dull edge of an arbitrary meritocracy. neglect, cancer maps, drone strike, famine. the forest is burning and soon they'll hunt us like wolves. 4. ANTHEM FOR NO STATE - kanada, emptied of its minerals and dirty oil. emptied of its trees and water. a crippled thing, drowning in a puddle, covered in ants. the ocean doesn't give a shit because it knows it's dying too. finally and in conclusion; the ,Luciferian Towers" L.P. was informed by the following grand demands: + an end to foreign invasions + an end to borders + the total dismantling of the prison-industrial complex + healthcare, housing, food and water acknowledged as an inalienable human right + the expert fuckers who broke this world never get to speak again.
