rgt #05: Giant Claw - Mortal Earth/Morbid Earth
rgt #05: Giant Claw - Mortal Earth/Morbid Earth C27
Giant Claw is admittedly a hard sound to define. Incredibly atmospheric, yet too involved to simply label as ambient or mere synth jams. Prog elements weave in & out of synth vectors & arpeggiation, but with a light-heartedness devoid of over-showmanship or tacky kitsch. Bright, often dramatic, and always lush, each side finds Giant Claw’s captivating world unfold in almost orchestral arrangements uncaring of where they’re headed while defying any sort of neat categorization like a shimmering sound vessel shot off as a treat for anyone lucky enough to find it.
High bias type II chrome tapes with full-color, double-sided folding J-cards. Limited to 50.
