Sow Discord, the solo electronic/dark ambient project from Whitehorse‘s noisemonger David Coen, released its first full-length on July last year in digital format. Entitled «Quiet Earth», the work featured guest performances from The Body‘s Chip King and Lee Buford (additional drums, guitars and vocals on «An Eroded Fortune»), Primitive Man‘s Ethan Lee McCarthy (additional electronics and vocals on «Watching From The Centre»), and Agents Of Abhorrence‘s Benjamin Wayne Andrews (all guitars and additional electronics) and the proceedings from digital sales were donated to Pay The Rent, a solidarity institution committed to help the Aboriginal people whose land was forcibly taken by colonialism (find out more here). Now, the beast that is «Quiet Earth» is heading to a physical release courtesy of Tartarus Records. As the Dutch label puts it regarding the Sow Discord project, it “is a cavernous, bass heavy unrelenting sonic animal, born from a dense, complex and hyper detailed construction of samples, explosive kick drums, guitars and junk percussion, that are constantly changing shape, imploding and turning themselves inside out, creating entirely new landscapes from within and around themselves.” As of the sonic abyss that is «Quiet Earth» itself, it “runs with a narrative of a dangerously frightening vision of a world hellbent on self destruction. Placed in the hands of those who harbour control. Those who are able to remove themselves from a world on fire. Those with a total disregard for the warning signs that have shown themselves time and time again,” and “is a scared documentation of humanity’s unwillingness to listen.” Confirm all this and more below, with the album’s full stream.
«Quiet Earth» is set for release on February 26 by Tartarus Records on cassette and vinyl formats, whose pre-orders can be found here. The original, digital version, released on July 15, 2020, can be found here.
