R.L. CRUTCHFIELD'S DARK DAY-EXTERMINATING ANGEL, LP, 1980, USA




Unlike the candy coated minimal synth immediacy of Dark Day's Window LP, which I posted a few days back, Robin Crutchfield's post-DNA unit are here trafficing in something rather more stark and eerie, and for me it's every bit as winning. I get a strong whiff of both early Tuxedomoon and Monitor in their command of tension-building and the somewhat processional quality of Dark Day's motion here and it's a lovely thing to behold.

Get it Here

Such a good album. Now I can listen to it "on the run". Thanks.

This is a great album but this rip sounds absolutely horrible. Lots of distortion and snap, crackle and pop that I'm not sure anyone was aware of before it was uploaded. Also, have and of you ever considered using a vbr encoding for your rips (like lame 3.97 v2-v0 preset)? Makes stereo listening far better (until we can find the album to purchase)

Thanks,
Again... great album!

This is the only one from them I was able to get 10 years back, alas in a heavily bruised copy.

No upload from a Dark Day should ever stay without a comment though, so on behalf of the rest of the esteemed publicum, thanks for posting this,
me myself eager to hear their other releases if you guys have some and willing to, ;-)

sincere greetings,
Lex

Hello i love this blog, but i noticed the post about one of the earlier uploads having a buzzing sound. I think this one has one as well. It starts (for me) about half way through the album and goes until the end of it. Maybe that's part of the sound...but i thought i should bring it up anyways, just in case.
