An unraveling journey of sound that often teeters on the brink of disappearing before it even begins at all– "October Language," the debut release from the New Orleans duo of Turk Dietrich and Michael Jones, is every bit as emotional despite the coldness it projects.
Somewhere in-between the physical lushness of Christian Fennesz's static-haze and the isolated melancholy of William Basinski, "October Language" is a series of compositions that that move in a glacial drift, decaying slightly with each desperate layer of processed guitar.
Distortion and feedback are found weaving into one another creating blankets of shifting white noise, atop gaspingly beautiful melodies nearly lost in the distance. These starbursts of sound are confronted by moments of hauntingly barren tones that gnaw at you even after the song expires.
Originally recorded in 2004, and released by Baltimore's Carpark Records two years later, "October Language" finds its birth on vinyl via Atlanta's Geographic North imprint. Limited to 500 pieces, the album is pressed on 180-gram vinyl and features alternate-colored artwork from its cd release. "October Language" features guest instrumentation from Telefon Tel Aviv's Joshua Eustis.
