øjeRum - There Is a Flaw In My Iris

Archival release of delicate guitar and vocal from øjeRum with There Is A Flaw In My Iris on A Giant Fern. Eight tracks recorded in in 06/07, Fragile sounds. Melancholy at times, but given a more studied listen, really quite moving and joyous in an odd understated kind of way. Beautiful touches abound, subtle layering of vocals that whisper on top and around each other, hissing tape underpinning sparse and effective acoustic guitar. Curious, not quite like much else and in a wonderful way. Favorite track, most certainly Matka

Edition of 50, split into three unique covers featuring collage art by the artist. It's a beautifully minimal presentation. Grab direct from A Giant Fern.
