Last week we introduced you to James Meuleners's Mother Room, and a song that's been floating around the web for a while, "Whole" – this week we have some more details:
Firstly, we're excited to officially announce Mother Room's debut album, Scorched. The record will available worldwide on June 3rd on a limited edition cassette tape, and your choice of digital download formats. Cassette editions will be pressed on red shells, and come packaged in a Five-Panel J Card, and black case.
In the vein of Dirty Beaches and Forest Swords, Scorched finds Meuleners fusing elements of drone and noise with gothic, and at times even pop intonations into swelling suites of disorienting distortion. Scorched was recorded almost entirely by Meuleners, and will serve as his debut release as Mother Room. Scorched is currently available for pre-order on cassette tape, digital download, and a cassette tape/ zine bundle which includes a a 10 page zine of gorgeous photographs taken by James.
In addition, our friends at The Bay Bridged premiered a new track off the upcoming Scorched LP, "Debt Collector". Not only is it one of the most song based tracks on the record, but The Bay Bridged calls it, "a dark and enthralling song that will leave you aching for just a bit more," and of the upcoming LP "a refreshing and absolutely captivating piece of music."
