Hellvete / Jake Blanchard

Split Cassette

Hellvete is Glen Steenkiste (Gonzalez & Steenkiste, Sylvester Anfang), here we have 3 distinctly different tracks, ranging from delicate percussion, zoned out drones and banjo plucking. It’s impossible not to get lost in this music, long tracks of sustained drones with subtle textures and layers building and fading.

This is the second release from Jake after his debut on Feathered Coyote. Often using hand made instruments Jake weaves blissful drones with primitve rhythm and melody at times harmonious and euphoric giving way to distorted and dissonant.

Limited to only 75 copies with artwork by Jake Blanchard on pro-dubbed cassettes.
