Planning For Burial is a solo project devoted to the art of slowcore (see Red House Painters). These dreamy, droney, shoegazey tracks wash over you with overwhelming melancholy, paralyzing any thought you had of being chipper today. Tracks 2 and 4 are interludes more than anything, but tracks 1 and 2 clock in at somewhere around 7 minutes, giving this tape some heft. Though time has no bearing once your sucked into this release.
Pro tip: Track 3 on repeat for the win.
