Cody Drasser's second solo album, 'Lugubrium Encumbrium' will soon be available once again in both cassette/digital formats. Some of you may recall that this cassette was available late last year through the efforts of the Gilded Peradam label. Peacock Window Recordings is now reissuing the album with all new artwork and a new mastering job along with 4 new songs. Some songs which appeared on the first version of the cassette have been renamed for greater cohesion of the album's themes of ghosts, the paranormal, graveyards, tortured spirits and what might await us beyond the earthly realm. A much vastly different creature than Cody's first solo outing, 'The Fate of Things,' this album takes a minimal approach to emphasize the eerie, shadowy and spectral nature of the sounds.
Being comprised of material recorded onto abandoned cassette over 10 years ago, Cody unearthed the cassettes from their hiding place and found that many of the tapes were suffering from varying degrees of deterioration. Not seeing this as an obstacle, Cody delved deeply into the music as it was, using the deterioration as a natural part of the album's feel. 'Lugubrium Encumbrium' has an aura of unearthly mystery that at times feels creepy and ominous, and at other times feels peaceful and comforting.
This new release is an exciting venture for PWR as it is the first cassette release for the label!
