One man recording project Deathbird Stories is built on a bed of heavily processed guitar and piano and manipulated tape loops. All forced through a huge string of pedals and effects to create these incredible undulating drones that pack the power, warmth and personality of Fennesz’s Black Sea. Only 50 CD-Rs made! Go!….

9/10 Patrick Customer review, 2nd July 2017
Seven dreamscape melodramas unfold in a kind of 'if Labradford did field recordings' way.
Classic drone-fuzz-ambient meshes with unexpected melodic interludes. Percussion seems to come in the form of shaken shackles, giving the fourth track "Walpurgisnacht" an unsettling sub-humour reminiscent of the more traumatic scenes in the latest Twin Peaks series.
"VORRH" comes across like some unspooling desert projector with added 'end of time' radio signals adding to the low level paranoia.
Some very heavy deep listening required but this rewards with repeated listening.
