FOTOCRIME Always Night CD
The Always Night 12” EP on Golden Antenna Records follows Fotocrime’s self-released Always Hell 7”, which was issued in early 2017 and quickly sold out of its limited edition pressing. In addition to two songs from the 7” (“Always Hell” and “Plate Glass Eyes”), Always Night features three new exclusive tracks and a remix by Ben Chisholm, producer and multi-instrumentalist for Chelsea Wolfe. All songs were produced by Pattern’s longtime collaborator J. Robbins (Jawbox).
Openers “Duplicate Days” and “At Play In The Night Tide” expand on Fotocrime’s dark post-punk sound with expanded melodic sensibilities and Thieneman and Pattern’s guitars interweaving alongside pulsing synthesizer sequences. “The Trance Of Love” enters new territory altogether, introducing the band’s first entirely electronic music (showing hints of early German EBM influence) and stark backing vocals from bassist Shelley Anderson.
The collection is rounded out by “Tectonic Shift (Continental Mix)” a remix and reconstruction by Ben Chisholm, known for his role as Chelsea Wolfe’s longtime bandmate, producer, and multi-instrumentalist. Chisholm’s lush arrangement features Pattern’s dark Leonard Cohen-esque vocals riding along a wave that crests and descends into darkness.
