Llihje is a project I started in the midst of recording Vilphagr's first opus. As opposed to the fast paced thrashy mayhem of Vilphagr, Llihje is drenched in reverb, spirals and chords of guitar tangle with each other overtop of simplistic dirge-like beats.
The first Llihje composition, Encompassing Nothing, was recorded over the months of October and November 2009, sitting in the corner of my apartment with only a lamp providing light. Many Richmond rainy days created the perfect atmosphere for recording.
4 tracks are sprawled out over 45 minutes of a single sided cassette. The lyrics, as the title suggests, are about solitude, lonliness, and what 'nothing' really is. Logan Butler, mastermind of Wolverine Carcass, one half of Wicked King Wicker, vocalist of Apocolyptic Youth, and great friend of mine appears on the cassette, doing vocals for each track.
Each cassette is dubbed one at a time, while I stitch a canvas bag for the release to fit into. Each cassette comes with canvas pouch, lyric sheet, and hand-stamped patch. Artwork and logo by my colleague Stephen Wilson.
Due to the cost of materials, this release is $8, shipped anywhere in the world.
Please allow up to a week prep time, as a busy schedule a lots only so much time for me to dedicate to putting each of these together.
$8 USD can be paypaled to email@example.com
I don't have any immediate plans to put out anything else of mine for at least a month or two at best
