Black Swan - In 8 Movements (2010)

Black Swan's debut.

This record sounds best when played in its entirety, seriously. It's just a little over 30 minutes long and it is damn good. Drone and modern classical fucks with tape hiss and analogue recording technology. Imagine something from LVNG RCRDS x Philip Glass. Or Brainfeeder x Triangle Records.

Vinyl officially drops December 14 so cop it for $15 or download it so you can have a bomb-ass listening party... or you can pretend you're in some fucked up Aronofsky/Lynch film, I don't care. For fans of William Basinski.

Makes it on my Best of 2010 list.

Disclaimer: This is not the OST for the film of the same name, someone else can post that if people really want it... This is Black Swan's debut.

EDIT: A few have expressed interest in purchasing the vinyl of this release. I hear the vinyl has 2 extra tracks, not featured on the digital release so (!!!!!!!). Purchase either directly from the artist or straight from the label. Your choice really.
