Stray Dogs' Wasteland is the fourth release for the Ghent-based partnership between Icarus Records and Ghent-based record store Vynilla Vinyl. Wasteland is the label's fourth release, following Echo Beatty's highly-acclaimed debut album Tidal Motions, the Record Store Day 2013 single Dirty Beaches-Ravel Ravel, and Ecila's full album The Sofa Managements. Stray Dogs aka Koenraad Ecker (cello, guitar, electronics) and Frederik Meulyzer (percussion, electronics) have been on an exciting musical journey ever since their debut album Intangible States. Balancing between electronica, dub, and experimental music, they've constructed their own sound universe where attention to detail and texture is combined with a physical intensity that you not only need to hear but feel as well. Stray Dogs take you along on a menacing, post-apocalyptic trip through a disintegrating no-man's land. Wasteland was recorded in a church in Antwerp (Belgium), making it more stripped-down, industrial and ritualistic than Intangible States. The acoustics of this space were exploited to a maximum, after which all elements were merged in the recording studio. Percussion, cello, guitars and analog hardware lead to a sonic result situated at the crossroads of ritual drums, dubby, reverberating echoes and disintegrating orchestras. Wasteland is released on a limited edition of 250 vinyl copies.
