Labradford - Prazision LP (1993)

Previously on OPIUM HUM:
Labradford - E Luxo So (1999)

Hey kids! Guess what time it is! That's right: it's fucking late! You know what that means! It's time to stare down the void and see if it stares back, this time with help from Labradford. Evocative, slow-burning drone and dark, minimal post-rock. Listening to Prazision LP is akin to that feeling you get when you're exploring a dimly-lit alien planet after having crash-landed, slowly growing accustomed to the notion that you're never going to be able to return to your home planet and will die alone in a beautiful but barren expanse.

1. Listening in Depth
2. Accelerating on a Smoother Road
3. Splash Down
4. Disremembering

  1. THANK YOU this is the one album of theirs I was missing

  2. Yep, me as well Sarah. Thanks man! Labradford defined the post rock we all love today.

  3. AH! My favorite album from the 90s. Became something of a soundtrack for driving around deep wooded roads on full-moon nights. If you please, I'd like to make a recomendation. If you like The "Prazision Lp", Mark Nelson, Labradford's singer has a side project: Pan American. Check out "The River made No Sound". A more minimal album but with a some haunting and inventive, electronic beats and sounds. It'll transport you to dreams beyond the clouds. Thanks dude. I still check your blog daily. I'm one of your watchers in the woods...zogaddams

    1. Thanks zogaddams. Really appreciate the recommendation. I am indeed familiar with Pan American and that album in particular, maybe I'll do a post on it. Cheers!
