    Following his ultra limited CDr/digital debut Prosper Drift (free download available on rcnrecordings.com), Black Unicorn (1/2 of hobos-from-the-future Cane Swords) shifts the focus from deep space to the deep seas. Squid and Whale follows the tale of two sea-beasts, their quarrel, and reconciliation in the shadow of a cosmic intuition.

    Heavy underwater arpeggios and synthesizers prove the ocean and outer space as selfsame, both representing the universal expanse and individual intimacy in the titular animals' struggle for identity and awareness. With a heavy focus on drone, pulsing patterns, and dramatic accidentals, Squid and Whale is a journey that evokes the classic synthesis of Tangerine Dream and John Carpenter, as well as bedroom synthesizer contemporaries—but this isn't another kosmische revival or throwback tribute album. Black Unicorn carefully balances drone and rhythm, noise and melody, pattern and chaos, and pulls these elements together to tell a story, one that is elaborated upon through the artwork and micro-fiction accompanying text.

    Comes on solid black cassette with dark blue ink in printed and hand stamped j-card. C27 limited to 50 copies. This is RCN Recordings 004.
