Aine O'Dwyer - Locusts LP
Label: Penultimate Press
Irish artist Aine O'Dwyer follows her highly acclaimed Music For Church Cleaners vol. I and II double LP (2015) with two LP releases, Locusts and Gegenschein (PP 026LP). While continuing to explore the church organ as the primary instrument, these two releases steer away from Church Cleaners in both sonic content and themes explored. O'Dwyer recorded Locusts in 2015 at St. James' Church in Barrow-in-Furness, England, and at the First Unitarian Congregational Society sanctuary in Brooklyn Heights, New York. The record presents itself as a celebration of the pipe organ's acoustic capacity to tap into electronic pulses, and of O'Dwyer's liturgical memories, which are, at times, pushed into horrorthon states. Edition of 500.
