My friend James Light of the Die Song label have been hard at work with his first release, which is Carrion Sunflower‘s eminent album “The Romantic Youth Of Jesus“. This is a seriously intricate item that will be yours if you’re one of the last pre-orderers, which are left. As this edition, limited to 30 copies was made – it was made with ultimate care. With a lathe cut LP, housed in the heaviest of materials á la French muscle tone paper, with a silver screen print front and back – which in turn have been hand-folded by Mr. Light himself. Make sure you support his work if you’re interested in Die Song 001, as Carrion Sunflower carries his darkly material through venues of unconventionality, as he combines the acoustic splendor of lo-fi black metal atmospheres with touches of neo-folk. So, if you really want to store something unique, be sure to pre-order this gem. To celebrate this occasion and the release to come in its entirety, as it is going out for shipping sooner or later – you get a free download of the eighth track “Don’t Hold Me Close“. You can pre-order this limited edition LP over here. Support his label if you really like this, by buying this limited edition release!
Die Song is a label that I actually got into by an accident. I slowly scrolled by on Facebook and found that one of my friends there liked this label. I imminently decided to check it out and was strangely attracted to the aesthetics of it. They were dark, they were somewhat nihilistic – almost on the verge. The first thing I got into was Carrion Sunflower, which had released their album “The Romantic Youth Of Jesus“. At first I was startled when I listened to it, and I couldn’t really fathom who would be into it. But after a few listens, it actually grew on me. James Light is the man behind this label, and it’s a label that is situated in the United States. He’s also released a split between Fistula and Radiation SIckness, which could be titled as the second release by this label. So, therefore, I decided to get in touch with him and ask him if he was interested in being interviewed. Now we’re here, with an in-depth interview in front of us. I asked him about the future releases, the meaning of his aesthetics, his craftsmanship, relations to other labels and many more questions. I hope you’re going to get your questions answered, and I hope you’d be as intrigued, if not more – as I was when I first stumbled upon Die Song.
