Charalambides Glowing Raw on 180g LP + Download
First Time Vinyl Release of Album Recorded in 1998 & Originally Issued as a Highly Limited CDR in 2006!
Formed in 1991, Charalambides has always and will forever be the constant core duo of Tom and Christina Carter. Though music scenes and genre classifications ceaselessly change, this duo has stayed "wholly-other" dedicated to a "vision of spiritual music (in all its forms) as transformative force." The sound of Charalambides is beyond unique. Personal and consistent, it moves forward and outwardly in radical shifts and strategies.
Glowing Raw is a record full of such intricacies. Charalambides' music carries the curious quality of being tethered only by itself. Tom and Christina don't pull music(s) in as much as they reach out to touch them, and in so doing, they summon a place that exists only when they play. The music shies neither from traditionalism nor formlessness. It's easy to ascribe a landscape-like quality to this music, and easier still to presume that the landscape of the music is the scene of their surroundings. Yet, what emerges is a place existing only in the hearts of those conjuring it. Glowing Raw...Any glow worthy of the name is, if you think about it, always raw. No one glows on command.
Recorded in the late-90s, with a very limited CDR release a decade later, Glowing Raw represents an important but often-unheard artwork in the all-amazing recording history of Charalambides. Created around the same time as the crucial Houston album, Glowing Raw is Charalambides in essential and pure form. It's powerful and potent. Drawing Room is proud to present the first time vinyl release of Glowing Raw. Each LP is pressed on 180-gram vinyl housed in a full color matte jacket (with download) and includes a foldout poster.
