Squat Cobbler 53: Vond – Selvmord/Suicide (review)

http://media.blubrry.com/nurtureandsupport/p/www.nurtureandsupport.net/ns/SC53.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | Email | Google Play | Stitcher | RSS  For round 2 of our “music prisoner exchange” Mike and I discuss Vond’s “Selvmord” (Suicide).  Mike shares the fairly unique original packaging, Kelly quibbles the cover is more murder-y than suicide-y.  So, basically a knee-slapper episode 🙂 Actually this is a great ambient album and you all should take a listen. Vond is a side project of Mortis, and you might want to check that work out as well.  Huge variety in musical style, including this gem…
