Four Enclosed Walls/Catholic Stare split


"Split between two new Canadian artists, Four Enclosed Walls (Edmonton, Alberta) and Catholic Stare (Montreal, Quebec).

Four Enclosed Walls issues four tracks of pulsing synths, searing feedback, and cavernous howls of distortion. Terrifying in its minimalist approach to experimental synthesis, F.E.W. bears the sound of apocalyptic dread in sonic black clouds of electroacoustic design.

Glass smashes, shatters, and explodes in the Catholic Stare tracks. As a meditation on material destruction, mangled recordings of glass being destroyed in different acoustic environments meld into film samples and droning synthesizers to create a deep listening experience that shares as much in common with the brutal force of harsh noise as it does with religious contemplative music."
