Providien "followed by a wraith" lp

followed by a wraith
Amethyst Sunset

I fucking love the Midwest. With Hanson Records and everything amazing coming out of Chicago, the Midwest is a hub of interesting experimental projects these days. In the case of Providien you have a band made up of Mark Van Fleet from Sword Heaven and Nathan Reynolds of American Jobs; both hailing from Ohio. This record is a sprawling collection of tracks; from grim atmospheric synth destruction, a la Throbbing Gristle, to lo fi acoustic guitar wanderings. Some songs actually verge on rock with over saturated beats and broken guitars. All very bleak and totally destroyed. It's really well assembled songs that have some strong structures for something so abstract. Excellent work and hopefully not the last time I will hear from these two. Limited to 200 copies.
