𝙑𝙖𝙚𝙙𝙚𝙧𝙤𝙪𝙨 This album is like a delirious flight through an eerie forest on humid, late summer afternoon. A helpful but frustrated bird is trying to lead you through the thicket, warning you of the danger lurking in the underbrush, but no matter how hard you try, you lose your way in confusion. Beautiful, menacing, groovy. I love it. Favorite track: Shrillness in the Heated Grass.

XUL//EXCELSI Sy ontbloot nie alles op die eerste aand nie,
maar ek kon sien dat iets spesiaal hier versteek is.

Met die sleutel van die eerste 3,
en herhaalde dompeling,
al is my blomtyd koors nog hoog,
sal ek soos 'n Karamazov gewillig in die sloot gaan lê,
peins in jubilasie,
die tuig is vervuil maar binne brand dit spierwit. -- L.D Favorite track: Velvet on the Horns.

1.
Barely heard A moan drifts up From a lower world The scent of wet ice Either a cattle farm Great mundane pleas from moonlit vats Of mud Some stirring of the blood Old alpine pang Or a crevice wail Broken leg song Lichen undernail A life of skin A blue so dark he will go blind A moan drifts up Bile on the breath of spring A silent swiss funicular On unlit rails Passes through dense wood smoothly Crosses the meadow And finds me Through a gap between the molding And the pane
2.
Blue as Blue 06:18
Blue as blue As oil paint As trim around the cedar door He touched the ceiling in his helicopter Once a day And made it to his cedar bed Exalted, bald And keening like a royal bird That nobody should see him anymore The dark flash of an airplane on the sun Crickets pulled a midday thread Behind his ears And made it bright The crops ballooned and split Untouched Red tubes and seeds Black paper Blue as blue As oil paint As damselflies below the cedar floor
3.
The day’s lung held full Shrillness in the heated grass Collapsing on his hunting stool Seed shells like a radiance The oligarch flanks his tent Salted thistle in his throat To the family Keep the mansion dark and Full of leaves For this Nest against the tent The day’s lung held full Shrillness in the heated grass Was where the ghosts lined up The physics of the carpet pain The coldest depth along the stream The darkest blue above the ridge Collapsing on his hunting stool Seed shells like a radiance But how the day refused to breathe
4.
Overnight Or was it not Green ragged cloth had fallen On the path The way I took had velvet on the horns I peered straight through And saw the shrinking frame Collapse and bloom And choke on its vast ornate teeth I would cry out If it were not so late I do not remember you Perfect sphere Chlorine smell Painting that was damaged in the hold Imagine that a propane tank When squarely struck Becomes a bell Yet huddles by the driveway in the cold
5.
Forgot the dream that led me to the cane But how the rattle tempts me Wide and scraping Sit and dry Make mica on your skin Divide your forearm Like a stack of yellow news Muscovite sheath Thick billfold fray New glinting slots the sun can breach The cane flares open Just before a hill I see the bronze plate water Gleaming Flawed like pollen settled and was cast A spectrum frozen flat Upon the gleam Now gold has turned to black Frogs pierce the ear I’m in the cane Forgot the dream that led me here
6.
Jubilat 10:39
Born in the shade I know what I am Hard head brimming with pine and gold The shade Like mud in a river fish Cannot be rinsed away A breeze in the dark room I know what the field mouse Startled Split with a scythe Knew of his own blood In the tear to the bright edge When the strange tree that catches the Eye among all others Moves in a trance In almost no wind Some fatal grain undone I know what I am

released October 20, 2017

With Immersion Trench Reverie, the seventh release from Yellow Eyes, the band pushes their delirious sound into new territory.

Recorded to tape in the same Connecticut cabin that was used for Sick With Bloom (and other Yellow Eyes releases), Immersion Trench Reverie brims with a familiar shimmering resonance, but infused throughout is an aura of something else— shortly before the early springtime recording of the album, brothers Will and Sam Skarstad returned home from a month in Siberia, bringing with them field recordings and a new sense of exigency in their songwriting. The result is the most complex, pummeling Yellow Eyes album thus far, framed with the sounds of Siberia in the winter: flat bells, wild dogs, and the close-harmony singing of a town’s women's choir. And so the hallucinatory melancholy of Yellow Eyes is cast in strange new light.

The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by the band and features M. Rekevics on drums (Fell Voices, Vanum, Vilkacis, Vorde), Alex DeMaria on bass (Anicon, Obaku), Sam Skarstad on guitar, and Will Skarstad on guitar and vocals (Ustalost, Sanguine Eagle, Vilkacis).

Immersion Trench Reverie will be available October 20th on CD, digital, and LP via Gilead Media and Tape via Sibir Records.
