The new record on Tartaruga is the first full CD release from These Feathers Have Plumes, entitled Corvidae.
Having previously released two sold-out cassettes on the New York tape label Period Tapes, this is the first time London-based These Feathers Have Plumes is available on CD.
Using double bass, glass, accordion, voice and field recordings, the album unfolds over five extended piece, casting an otherworldly spell of drone and dissonance. The aptly-titled 'Portal' opens the album, layers of low-frequency reverberations slowly erupting, before a distant voice emerges from the maelstrom. Meticulously constructed, this piece sets the tone for the rest of the disc, shimmering and pulsating drones that beguile and bewitch the listener.
Available in a beautiful two-colour screenprint in custom Tartaruga packaging, this is produced in a run of just 100 numbered CDs (CDR).
The limited 3-colour screen-printed Corvidae poster is now sold out.

The poem on the closing track is written, and read, by Jessica Denton. For more information please see: www.myspace.com/jessdenton
