Charalambides Strangle The Wretched Heavens on 180g LP + Download

First Time Vinyl Release of Album Recorded in 1995-96 & 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.

This music is every bit as supernatural as it is grounded, and what it does, ultimately, is move according to its own internal logic, as our feelings move according to their own internal logic. That is what keeps Charalambides' music relevant, what makes it timeless. It doesn't prey on simple nostalgia or easily defined categories of manufactured emotion. It's proven time and time again that it's neither overly tethered to, nor an escape from, reality. These songs map a private language, a place of their own making, mysterious and alluring to anyone who hears them. They turn any number of worlds, with all attendant expectations, on their heads, acting as a platform for mobile, twirling, ineffable feeling.

Initially recorded in the mid-90s, with a very limited CDR release in the mid-00s, Strangle the Wretched Heavens represents a missing and essential puzzle piece in the all-amazing recording history of Charalambides. Following one of their earliest seminal releases, the almighty Market Square, Strangle... is the next chapter. Dark and intense, the album is pure beauty inside and out. Its magic is almost indescribable, but its power can be physically felt completely.

Drawing Room is proud to present the first time vinyl release of Strangle The Wretched Heavens. Each LP is pressed on 180-gram vinyl housed in a full color matte jacket (with download) and includes a foldout poster.
