Published Sep 13, 2013Toronto drone duo Nadja are no strangers to studio collaborations, having previously worked with the Jesus Lizard's Mac McNeilly on Dagdrøm, as well as with members of Pyramids, Cocteau Twins and Khanate for Pyramids with Nadja. The duo's work with 11-piece Japanese combo Vampillia is now about to be highlighted again, via a vinyl release of their The Perfect World.
The set, a tweaked-up version of the Japanese tour release The Primitive World, and is out now as a limited-edition LP through via Important Records. A press release notes that the crew's collaborative work presents a "hybrid of doom and neo-classical music." Nadja's Aidan Baker and Leah Buckareff delivered a wall of guitars, as well as bass, drum machine, and flute. The members of Vampilia likewise threw down some guitar work, as well as, piano, organ, strings and operatic vocals.
This latest pressing of 500 LPs, with 100 on coloured wax, includes an additional track called "Avalanche," and brand new mixes of tracks from The Primitive World. A Bandcamp version of The Perfect World adds two more songs.
