Hototogisu - Ghosts From the Sun - 2CD
On this double CD, Hototogisu masterfully create a dense sediment of tectonic drone with the thickest layers of guitar, vocals and electronics. Elaborately arranged, The Hototogisu are obviously seasoned sonic travelers, featuring the legendary Matthew Bower (Skullflower, Sunroof!) and Marcia Bassett (Double Leopards).
Ghosts From the Sun is one enormous composition, nearing two hours in length, unfolded and nailed together in seven movements. Starting with a slow drone electronic crawl and climaxing with crackling bone percussion buried howls of haunted minds, Ghosts From the Sun cries out from beneath an earthquake of guitar feedback and distortion. Ghosts From the Sun compresses eternity, from the creation of humanity to it's own destruction, into seven parts on one double album. This is epic and total sonic overload, by way of Hototogisu.
NOTE: We're out of stock on the mass produced version but we've got some copies of a hand made edition done by the group. No two are the same.
