"The Midwest is a real Shangri-la for bohemia basement bleakness so it's not real surprising that loner tape grime duo Providien hail from the snow-blasted state of Ohio, and have a grim grassroots aura that just feels right. Led by Sword Heaven electrician Mark Van Fleet and partner-in-crime/childhood friend Nathan Reynolds (also of weirdo goths American Jobs), Providien's debut, Followed By A Wraith, sprawls from disembodied horror atmospherics to no-fi sludge death marches to pure weirdo home-taper acoustic guitar meltdowns, each new zone more unsettling and brainwashed than the last. Has elements of Mammal (especially the recent drone-suicide ballads), The Shadow Ring (just replace all the British stuff with raw American sloth), and various other esoteric cassette miserablists, but that's just a roundabout way of saying this shit rules." - Britt Brown. The LP is limited to 200 copies on black vinyl with color center labels and a paste on cover.
