Update 30/7/18: We've managed to get hold of a few more of the clear/purple LP. This is the same variant as the UK indies exclusive, but a little more expensive because it has been imported
Exclusive indies only LP is on 180g clear/purple vinyl.
The new full length album from San Fransisco's Deafheaven. Epic and frantic post-hardcore combined with metal and in places a post-rock or doom/sludgy feel. If you're into the likes of Rolo Tomassi, Code Orange, Gojira or Touche Amore then there'll be something here for you.
Clarke describes the composition of Ordinary Corrupt Human Love beginning with “small seeds of healing, repair, and rebirth,” and like each subsequent Deafheaven album, this record is, in fact, a revelation. Defeat has inspired some of our best art. If you survive something terrible, you surface on the other side, walk toward the light, and come back to life. If you’re an artist, this kind of new self-knowledge can lead to creating something universal and remembered, something that can live longer than you do. While Deafheaven have managed to cross over this road in the past, they’ve nailed the feeling wholly with Ordinary Corrupt Human Love, a feeling that comes with experience and wisdom. Yes, everybody deals with hurt, everybody’s been the cause of their own implosions, and everybody has the capacity to overcome and love again. Deafheaven have found a way to externalize all of this, and in making their most complete record to date, they turn it into a balm and a cathartic exorcism.
