Brussels-based Prairie present Like a Pack of Hounds, their debut full-length. Though their music is often described as ambient, Prairie is more like a dark trip through veins of post-post-rock ideas: electronic music production, instrumental layers, and powerful drone energy. Like a Pack of Hounds contains nine tracks full of fragile beauty, dangerous sounds, and guitars, in a kind of land-sound-scape style that really hits and hurts. Tracks like "Elle See" or "Closed for Thirty Midnights" feature crystalline vocal performances: "Elle See" is a disturbing song sung by French performer Lucille Calmel; the touching "Closed for Thirty Midnights" is sung by Prairie mastermind Marc Jacobs himself. Jacobs, born in the Netherlands and now living in Brussels, works as freelancer for the high profile music and art venue Bozar (Brussels) and for the art and nature festival Deep in the Woods (Massembre, Belgium), and is a co-curator for the Brussels Film Festival. The influences of these interests are on display in his work as Prairie. The CD includes Prairie's 2013 debut EP, I'm So in Love I Almost Forgot I Survived a Disaster, which is also available via the download code included with the LP.
