BRIAN ENO, KEVIN SHIELDS The Weight Of History / Only Once Away My Son 12" Single Vinyl RSD2018
12" single in full colour printed sleeve with standard paper inner, no download card.
2-track double A side 12" from the legendary sonic pioneers.
The unexpected, fully welcome, and deliriously successful pairing of professional ex-glam sound genius Brian Eno and his new sidekick, My Bloody Valentine noise sculptor Kevin Shields.
Begging to be listened to on noise-canceling headphones or very, very loud speakers, the duo blast off with a drum track that is instantly, almost comically subsumed into a nine-minute sound-cleanse of bells, drones, and a soaring rocket flare that may be a guitar.
Ambient but hardly static, its tones and textures return throughout, as if tracing long and inaudibly developing melodies. Not immediately identifiable as either Eno or Shields' work, a rich, enveloping piece of music - Pitchfork.
