Burial Hex - The Night b/w Brighter Than The Day 12"
Newest offering from Clay Ruby's legendary Burial Hex composition cycle. "The Night" signals the beginning of the end of this cycle, as it is the first single from the upcoming Final Mysteries 3xLP. "The Night" is a stirring ballad about the unfathomable nature of the night sky, with lyrics based on a poem cycle by Rainer Maria Rilke, which features Clay Ruby's idiosyncratic electronics and uneasy crooning, enhanced by the exquisite string and horn arrangements of longtime Burial Hex collaborator Troy Schafer (from Kinit Her, Wreathes, etc). Exclusive to this release is the side-long b-side electro agony of "Brighter Than The Day", and the bleak photography and graphic design of Aluk Todolo's Shantidas Riedacker, making this the perfect platter for some inspired summertime stargazing.
