Time's No Measure 1987-1993 (Volume 1)
"Double LP retrospective of late '80s gothic folk collective, Annabelle's Garden. Annabelle's Garden were a radically underground goth-wave/neo-folk band founded in Hamburg, Germany by members of local acts La Lisa and Beyond Despair, most active between 1987 and 1997. Often compared to contemporaries like Death in June, Sol Invictus, or Current 93 (they toured extensively with 6Comm), they managed to create music that existed both in that realm and beyond, labeled as psychedelic, punk, new wave, and goth. You can clearly hear respect given to This Mortal Coil, The Cure, and The Wake -- making them as easily filed among classic World Serpent releases as they would fit among 4AD or Factory. The truth is, so little was known about Annabelle's Garden outside of Europe that their original releases on Kenaz extremely hard to find -- you were lucky to even have heard about them to know to search. However, what exists here in Annabelle's Garden is some of the most layered, deep, rich, and nostalgic music Dais has ever uncovered. This gorgeous limited gatefold double LP is comprised of not only the original Kenaz release from 1993: Wo Sind Nur Eure Götter Hin?, but also includes tracks from the band's original first recording and maiden cassette release, as well as a special never before heard remix of their classic anthem 'If.' Limited edition of 500 in a gorgeous gatefold double LP."
