"A Strange Export" (NRR78)

by Hum of the Druid



The first new recordings released since "Predatory Outlook," marking the 15th anniversary of the project, this has glimpses of similarly chilling melodic ambient music but runs a much wider spectrum of industrial noise, electro-acoustic, and pure dark experimental spirit committed to analog 4-track with edges exposed, created intuitively and with some kind of unspoken guidance only worth mentioning in vague terms because that's all I have anyway. In March 2018 I was preparing to record this album and remembered a phrase I had come up with earlier, "A Strange Export," and during a walk that evening the rest of the titles came to me in order. During the next week I recorded every night and this was the result, with only minor finalization taking place over the next month. After recording, I found a sketchbook where I had written "A Strange Export" in the previous year or two, then found another old sketchbook where I had written "A Strange Export" on the back close to 5 years earlier. I don't unconsciously write the same thing multiple times so the phrase seems to have had some ongoing significance that only necessitated use in 2018. The inside j-card features a large drawing scaled down also called "A Strange Export" that was created alongside the creation of its audial namesake. This isn't an explanation, just a description, and this album of dark spiritual industrial music speaks for itself.
