– Life Through Bombardment Vol. 2 – Vinyl Box Set –

Life Through Bombardment Volume 2 is now available for pre-order through Temporary Residence Ltd.

A huge thanks to the ever-wonderful Obsolete World for sharing her process in the making of all of the original artwork for the set.

Life Through Bombardment Vol. 2 collects almost every Eluvium recording made since the release of the first Life Through Bombardment set back in 2009. Packaged similarly to the first set — a library-style clothbound hardcover book with seven distinct sleeves featuring new original artwork by longtime collaborator Jeannie Lynn Paske — this is the first time these recordings have been released on vinyl. This awe-striking, super-deluxe set includes the albums SimilesStatic Nocturne, and Nightmare Ending, as well as the b-sides, remixes, and bonus tracks that accompanied them. Also included is Wisdom For Debris, the rare album that accompanied Paske’s art book of the same name, and finally Curious Things, a full-length bonus album of rare and previously unreleased material recorded from 2009-2015.

As with the first (long out-of-print) volume, Life Through Bombardment Vol. 2 is strictly limited to 1,000 copies. Each is hand-assembled and hand-numbered, and includes a removable library card signed by the artists.

Cameron Crowe & Pedals/Petals Eluvium 10 inch










Many years ago, Cameron Crowe’s Vinyl-Films Records imprint asked if i would be interested in releasing some music with them via their ongoing 10 inch series.  I was (and still am) incredibly honored to be given the opportunity to work with such good people.  The music created for the series was inspired by my early days of sitting in a room with instrument foot pedals, endlessly toying around for interesting sounds.

Pedals/Petals will see release via your local record store November 25, 2014. It will be available in black or glow-in-the-dark versions, with all copies having glow-in-the-dark spot gloss on the album art. – I hope you enjoy it.

A great deal of thanks to Cameron, Andy Fischer, and all at Vinyl-Films for creating something so nice with me.
