Long Distance Calling

Eraser - Recycled Vinyl

£39.99

Released: 26th August 2022. For 16 years now, the Germany based four-piece Long Distance Calling is famed and cherished for its weightless yet massive music, yielding seven full-length Records and countless absorbing live shows all over Europe. Their eighth album 'Eraser' is a direct and heartfelt tribute to the gradual erosion of nature at the hands of mankind. It is dedicated to the world's endangered species, with each song representing one particular creature facing extinction. From the thunderous wake-up call of the opener 'Blades' (dedicated to the rhinoceros) and the epic, haunting bombast of '500 Years' (dedicated to the Greenland shark), through to the fizzing intricacy of 'Blood Honey' (the bee) and the sonorous, slow-motion devastation of the closing title track (wherein humanity itself is the focus), Long Distance Calling has conjured a wildly evocative and diverse collection of songs. Crackling with live energy, but as nuanced and atmospheric as anything in their catalogue, the album is another bold leap for this most idiosyncratic of bands. Immersive, progressive and endlessly inventive, 'Eraser' is another self -evident career peak from these dedicated musical mavericks. *Recycled vinyl production uses leftover wax that's already in the factory to cut down on waste, resulting in a more environmentally friendly process. As a result. each record is different and will vary from the stock image
