Through The Window is the new album by Prurient, his first for Blackest Ever Black.
It is, in a sense, both the climax and the conclusion of the journey that Dominick Fernow began with 2011's 'Many Jewels Surround The Crown' 7" and continued with that year's Bermuda Drain LP and Time's Arrow EP. It was recorded before the Hospital Productions founder's move to Los Angeles, but in tone, subject matter and scale it firmly anticipates his current stint navigating the desert city’s "hall of mirrors, sycophants, fair-weather friends and social vampires."
The three pieces featured on Through The Window, including the 18-minute title track, also represent the ultimate expression of Fernow's affection for European techno forms, and his ability to apply them to his own uniquely lacerating purpose. Unlike his claustrophobic, inward-looking work as Vatican Shadow, this material is widescreen, open, expansive. Nonetheless the goal is exorcism and self-knowledge, not ecstasy. Through The Window is, at bottom, a work of true SM electronics. Music to listen to at night, in the hills, watching as headlights approach.
Through The Window will be released on vinyl LP, CD, and digital formats in February 2013, with a cassette edition to follow in March. This is the pre-order page for the cassette edition.
The cassette features collage artwork by Dominick Fernow unique to this edition. Pro-dubbed cassette housed in clear plastic library case with photocopied inlay. Edition of 100, first 30 available to pre-order now.
