Purity Ring: Another Eternity

CAD-3501

From the label:
.
“Whilst Canadian duo Purity Ring‘s 2012 debut Shrines was composed remotely between Halifax and Montreal, Another Eternity marks the first time Megan James and Corin Roddick were able to create a record in the same room. The pair ventured home to the frozen industrial landscapes of their birthplace Edmonton, Alberta to document much of what was to become the album. With the self-produced Another Eternity, Purity Ring trade the claustrophobic atmospheres of Shrines for wide-open expanses of sound. Between the brooding anthem ‘Begin Again’, the infectious ‘Bodyache’, and the time suspending ‘Stillness In Woe’, the emotional geography of Another Eternity is wider than ever: gloomy valleys and gleaming peaks in equal measure. Megan’s vocals are in sharper focus as she details her lyrical universe of “sweat and dreams” populated by sea-castles, rattling spines and weeping drawers. Corin’s gift for evocative melody remains intact but his percussive skills and sense of composition have been refined and honed.”

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
