    Introducing LB006: WIFE - Stoic.

    25 year old multi instrumentalist James Kelly is until now best known as the sole permanent member and writer behind black metal outfit Altar Of Plagues, who have released two critically acclaimed albums on iconic labels Profound Lore and Candlelight. Using found sounds, homemade instruments and field recordings as a base, Altar Of Plagues create music "Full of radical tangents and alien-to-black metal elements, more focused on frailty and struggle than majesty and grandeur" (Pitchfork).

    These ideas transfer to James' solo recordings as WIFE. Embracing his long standing passion for electronic music, the tracks on 'Stoic' showcase a diverse range of influences and are built to endure. The A-Side moves from the mournful, hypnotic opener 'Bodies', through the cold mantra of 'Trials', to the shuffling trickery of 'Circles'. Side B contains the Gothic 2-step beauty of 'Shards' and the epic, industrial crescendo of 'Endings'.

    With an uncompromising vision - and an remarkable live show - to back up these initial offerings, WIFE is a truly unique talent.

    WIFE will release further material on Tri Angle in 2013.

    "This is great... I mean, really great!" - Ben Frost.
