This Will Destroy You: Black Dunes (edit) b/w Black Dunes (Holy Other's Woman in the Dunes Mix)
In any relationship, what's not said often lingers: the relative silence of atoms and electrons bonding, or the long distance stare of the lonely. Texan four-piece, This Will Destroy You, understands what lasts, binding their sound to distant starlight as it slips thru the night sky. "Black Dunes" is the second single chosen from the band's stellar album, Tunnel Blanket. Two versions of the song appear here for the first time. One edited by the band themselves, and the other a b-side remix by Holy Other that, like the best of his work, blurs the sourced sound, creating a new language from the previous original. It's an offering - limited to an edition of 500, on Suicide Squeeze Records - and an attempt, the kind that only the best of us make, to communicate with the universe. Comes with a download coupon.
This Will Destroy You: Tunnel Blanket
Tunnel Blanket delivers the epic-in-scope soundscapes that followers of its makers' previous recordings are accustomed to, but presents them in new lights ? where once the sun shone down bright upon immediate tropes and traits, now their work is better suited to distant starlight, casting changeable shadows across vistas of inspired, ambitious amplification. This is not an album to pick through in search of bold hooks and instant melodies. It is an ever-shifting, always moving work, which seems to evolve before the listener ? spidery guitar lines feeling their way forth like vines scrambling up trunks in time-lapse photography.
