The Dead Texan: Vinyl LPKRANK072LP
Release Date: 23rd September
Since The Dead Texan's 2004 self-titled came out I no longer felt a need to the womb as an early floating embryo, mind all clear, just a need to grow and chill. It relieved my mother of awkward conversations over dinner because Adam Wiltzie of Star of the Lid had provided me with a record so blissful, so enveloping in a lush digital chill that I was all good.
First vinyl issue of the sole The Dead Texan album originally released in 2004. Gatefold Sleeve.
“Stars Of The Lid’s Adam Wiltzie presents a collection of drone compositions that he considered too aggressive for his parent band—which means they range somewhere between a whisper and a shout. The sense of cathedral-like reverence is balanced with extreme intimacy.” — 8.2 Pitchfork
“This is quite possibly the best music available for slowly drifting into dreamland. Equal parts intrigue and sedative, The Dead Texan is an elegantly hypnotic album that manages to freeze time in addition to passing it.” —Tinymixtapes
“The Dead Texan remains a remarkably subtle and tranquil work. Disarmingly lovely...” —Textura
Another sweeping album from STARS OF THE LID/A WINGED VICTORY FOR THE SULLEN and AIX EM KLEMM member ADAM WILTZIE, this time under his DEAD TEXAN moniker.
Eleven mini-symphonies of nocturnal psychedelia and reverie-inducing soundcraft, propelled with piano, strings, and Wiltzie's surreal smear of guitars.
