CD and a LP

Back to back days of getting a CD and LP in the post. Today brings the first 500mg LP called 'Vertical Approach'. It's a split release from Galactic Zoo Disk and Eclipse Records. I bought it in anticipation of the new 500mg LP and CD coming out by the end of the month (or early next month) from Three Lobed.

The CD is Ulver's second release 'Kveldsfanger'. After releasing their debut album of black metal they completely went in the opposite direction and made a Scandinavian folk album. Lots of acoustic guitars, flute and strings (mostly cello) along with some traditional sounding vocals. Although the atmosphere is at times similar to black metal, the production is excellent. I only wish this album was longer than 36 minutes.
