• steven r. smith / ulaan khol Ending / Returning (double LP, £25.50)

    label: Immune

    Steven R. Smith’s work ranges from sparse solo guitar solo guitar improvisations that evoke the crumbling American landscape to his re-workings of Eastern European folk tunes under the Hala Strana moniker and dense blown out psychedelic fuzz guitar workouts under the Ulaan Khol, Ulaan Markhor, or Ulaan Passerine monikers. *On this double album Ending/Returning Steven R. Smith has recorded the same set of songs first as Steven R. Smith and then as Ulaan Khol. Ending is a quiet, minimal record as Steven R. Smith while Returning is a blown-out, maximal record as Ulaan Khol. *Ending/Returning was mastered by Patrick Klem and cut to vinyl by Paul Gold at Salt Mastering. The double LP is pressed on high quality virgin vinyl and packaged in a lavish gatefold jacket. The front and back panels of the jacket are printed in silver metallic ink on a white background while the inside gatefold is a beautiful full colour aerial photograph of lava fields from world- renowned German photographer Bernhard Edmaier. *A free download coupon is included “one of America’s great hidden artists.” - Dusted Magazine. “with Smith we truly have an artist of such eclecticism, adventure, mortality (and all its implications) and immediacy that he cannot possibly be ignored.” - Foxy Digitalis. “sublimely cathartic music” - Boomkat.
