Artist: Neil Jendon
Title: "Male Fantasies"
Format: Cassette
Catalog Number: LOD 010
Edition Size: 100 Copies

Neil Jendon has been one of our favorite Chicago musicians since we first saw him play at Enemy with Consumer Electronics in 2008. "Male Fantasies" is a modular synthesizer workout that follows up his recent CD "Cities in Flight" (Bloodlust!). The pieces on here range from being thick, noisy, abrasive passages to quiet serene and contemplative. Neil is one of the most talented musicians in the Chicago music scene and we're elated to be releasing this tape for him. Our description isn't going to do this release justice so check out part of it below.

Artist: Dead Letters Spell Out Dead Words
Title: "No Words"
Format: Cassette
Catalog Number: LOD 009
Edition Size: 100 Copies

Land of Decay is pleased to announced the our newest release, “No Words” from Sweden’s Dead Letters Spell Out Dead Words. Dead Letters Spell Out Dead Words is the project of the Swedish musician, as well as designer, Thomas Ekelund. His “Lost In Reflections” album was one of our favorites from 2008/2009 and this music follows that album’s trajectory: minimal, haunting, and minor. “No Words” is both ethereal and unsettling.

The artist recorded the music for this release in summer 2009 at Keiller’s Park, Göteborg, Sweden. When Skies are Grey originally released this material in two editions: the first and edition of 23; the second an edition of 46. We were lucky enough to get copies of the original release and we are honored to be releasing this edition.

The Land of Decay version contains artwork and design from Terence Hannum, as well as bonus material that was not included in previous editions of the release.

Track Listing:

A1: No Words
A2: No Words
B1: Forgive Forget Regret [Not available on original release]
