Second Pressing, edition of 200, 7" single - Bora Yoon + Ben Frost
The paradox here is: pure physicality is a manifestation of the mind's inner workings. The internal score sheds light on conveyances between the overlooked, the personal, the half-remembered, and the half-expressed, all draped in shadow. Associations are created, space for breath and speech, a conversation from memory. The implication of a thought that we can't fully express begins to germinate, and is forever tied to either the weather at the moment, the one we are with, or the briskness of our pace as we move through time. There's a sense that a feeling is always on the tip of the tongue, but it isn't said. Bleak and barren landscapes can be warm companions. The contradictions embedded in any formal structure may be embraced. - Casey Zap
