Deaf Center's second album Owl Splinters from 2011 gets a lavish re-packaging as a gatefold, double-LP. It includes the Svarte Greiner re-interpretation album, Twin, as well as new cover art with photos by cinematographer Joshua Zucker-Pluda. Owl Splinters was originally released six years after DC's debut, Pale Ravine. In contrast to their previous work, it was recorded in a studio setting (Nils Frahm's Durton studio, to be exact), and the lo-fidelity, haphazard techniques of their early recordings where all but gone. With the benefit of high-end engineering and analog equipment, Erik K Skodvin and Otto A Totland's murky compositions were transformed from sketches into glorious widescreen spectacles. Eight years later the album sounds as moving, beautiful, and obscure as it did back then. Twin is a 40-minute interpretation of Owl Splinters by Erik K Skodvin under his Svarte Greiner alias. The record takes the long-form, ghostly sections of its parent album and expands them into crushing drone epics. The two parts are cut into four sections, pieced together by used and unused material from the recording session. It first appeared in form of an accompaniment CD that came with the initial 100 LPs of Owl Splinters. This is the first time Twin appears on vinyl. Double LP version; Gatefold sleeve with foil embossing; Includes download code.
