about

It comes from dimensions unknown. Wilderness of Love, the smoke-colored debut album by mystical prophets Shadow Band, sounds more conjured than recorded. When the sprawling collective decided it was time to document their dark craft, rather than choosing to work in a traditional recording studio, they dove headlong into their time honored method of capturing late night jams on mouldering home-recording devices. Oblivious to life outside, the band laid down sounds that could only happen in these contained moments of silent enlightenment.

The album that resulted is indeed a product of the wild. The eleven songs here travel on a misty journey through both lantern-lit psyche-folk dirges and depraved deathknell blues, wobbling in the balance of paranoia and universal understanding. The homespun production mirrors the low-lit environment in which the album was made, with strange stringed instruments, theremin vibrations and buried percussion all washing by as a singular, alien texture. Songs melt with the sound of distant birds and pagan pan flutes only to rise up in swells of unholy synth. Mellow but godless, the Shadow Band creates their own reality, reflecting on the dying embers of haunted dreams but moving ever forward through the dusk.

about

Shadow Band Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Riding in on a cloud of smoke, psychedelic travelers Shadow Band sound more like a foggy dream of fantastical lands than any easily identifiable set of musical choices. Their patient but powerful sounds set in motion a series of refracting echoes, conjuring up images of medieval battles, blissed-out trips and the haze of a sleep-deprived commune of heads in a state of perpetual vibing. ... more

Track Name: Endless Night
Unwinding roads yield winding paths
Beware the deadly dragon's breath
A dark harp of sorrows I'll bare
O dark globe I roam
When love’s in bud
A virgin light
The moon it glows
The sun it shines
No time to fear the hourglass
Put out the flame or make it last

The fog rolls in
All fades to white
All things are lost in endless night
A falling feeling fills me whole
O wings of love return once more

To feel the winds that weed the grass
And see the mists as they come to pass
I love to see the flowers amass
My love to reap, to sow
Track Name: Eagle Unseen
Darkness has fallen
Thick is the fog
Join howl with the wild white wolves

Winter has come

I hear a war knocking at the door
Tales of the eagle unseen
I smell the fear welling in our souls

Winter has come
In the Dark Night of Saint John
There's nowhere to run
Winter has come
Darkness has fallen
Track Name: Daylight
Want
To feel
Alive
Dizzy in the green grass
For the days
For the nights I've laid waste
Books for the brain
Ghosts to their graves
Pour their souls out into nothing
Look see the rain
It's going away
The sunlight is coming out today
We'll dance dance dance
Dance around the green man
The gravestones are talking to me
