Emperor Of The North

Street Van / Songs Of Love

Daft Alliance
CD $8.05

12/25/2020

DA 206 


The murky provenance of Emperor of the North aka W.T. Nelson’s audio fieldwork spans three decades. It includes performance & production of recordings on Three One G, Relapse, Kitty Play & Gravity Records by Geronimo, The Bastard Noise, Man is the Bastard & Sleestak (plus key electronic instrument designs for Trogotronic). Whereas some heads strive to write the Great American Novel, EOTN here endeavors to rewrite “All-Time Classic Songs of Love.” Inspired by the ass-pirational kustom lifestyle of shag carpet, shaggier body hair & free mustache rides, EOTN trades savory overtones of jungle-stew for a more menacing energy of Old Spice, leaded gasoline & an ashtray full of True Menthol butts in this go-mantic romp through a time when #vanlife was MANLIFE. Distilled from the discharge of hand-built electronics & field recordings, the arrangements inspire daytime hallucinations without ever overwhelming or belaboring the well-established marks of experimental genres from ambient to harsh. In a world full of noise, EOTN manages to stand out with one of the most consistently unique & recognizable voices. Originally released as a limited edition of 100 cassettes by Kitty Play Records in 2015, EOTN’s Street Van/Songs of Love is now issued by Daft Alliance for the first time on the digital audio compact disc medium.
