I'm very excited to announce my new ep THE FROZEN YEARS has ben released on Condition Human Recordings.
"Recording, sequencing, mixing and releasing an album is like a baby and this one was no less a labor of love than the others, despite its shorter length. An ep is like a sneak preview of where I'm at between albums," says Charles Terhune aka Cathode Ray Tube. "Even though most of the time tracks were written months before."
The Frozen Years covers wide sonic territories, packing a full album's worth of music into a compact package. 'Gutter Purger's' deep drop vocals meld with intergalactic trap beats. "Dormant Alchemy's" slow burn intro progresses from dark ambience into a beat heavy shuffle across icy lands. "Here We Go" binds heavy metal drums with pizzicato tones in a melancholic stroll through a wintry garden. This is followed up by the bleep-tastic funk workout on "Fresh Money Stacks." Funk continues with the skittering, glitchy hip-hop of "The Unkind Rewind's" nods to Cabaret Voltaire, Ghislain Poirier and Tim Cosner's arson hip hop. The EP finishes with the proto-jazz new wave romance of 'Clay Hearts (For Alice)' with its echoes of New Order.
On each of "The Frozen Years" tracks CRT deepens and widens the breadth of his soundscapes while improving and refining his well-established techniques.
THE FROZEN YEARS IS AVAILABLE ON: Bandcamp, Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Google Play, Amazon, Pandora, Deezer, Tidal, YouTube, Microsoft Groove, ClaroMusica, Saavn, and MediaNet
