Planning for Burial: Desideratum
Artist: Planning for Burial
Product Type: VINYL LP
Vinyl LP pressing. 2014 release, the second album from the New Jersey cult Gloomgaze act. DESIDERATUM is the follow-up to their 2010 album STATEMENT OF PURPOSE. Simultaneously nostalgic and futurist sounding, Planning for Burial is the work of mastermind Thom Wasluck, who filters his influences thorough a droning, gloomy spyglass to evoke the most haunting blues this side of the gray waters of the Atlantic. The project is often lumped in with the current wave of bedroom recording artists, yet Wasluck stands apart from his peers due in no small part to his education and expertise in sound design. Planning for Burial's brand of dark shoegaze is hard to categorize, but it incorporates elements of slowcore, doom, drone, '90s alt-rock, '80s goth, black metal and mournful, Neil Young-esque regret.
