  • Ultra-Rare Original Promo Version [Alternate Artwork Lightscribe Disc / Archive Copy]
    Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    More artifacts unearthed while unpacking and moving into the new studio! I've found ONE COPY (likely the ONLY copy, in fact) of the first iteration Ocean Lion, before it was decided that it would become a public release. It features a unique packaging aesthetic of a jewel case with two hand-cut patterned cardstock inserts, handwritten track titles and cat#, and a custom "M" ink stamp. The disc is decorated with a photograph of a girl riding a bike, imprinted onto the surface via Lightscribe printing. A strange artifact that existed only momentarily as a precursor to something much bigger.

    **NOTE: The items listed in the back catalog sale have all been found while unpacking. Some of them have been packed away for years in storage, and may have small imperfections. These are being sold as is, as the artifacts they are, to raise money for implementing the new studio. No refunds will be given.

about

REISSUED! In celebration of the long-delayed and much-awaited OCEAN LION III, both OCEAN LION and OCEAN LION II are being given reissues in matching packaging, with updated album cover photography to make the whole set glow on your record shelf. Possibly THE tropical CH album, for many listeners out there - a landmark in the ever-expanding Halifaxian universe! Remember, it's not a lake - it's an ocean!

"Ocean Lion is the first of four planned albums to bear the title, wherein deep seascapes of dripping tropical atmosphere and droning ambient bliss coalesce with mid-fi drum work that could be a distant buoy, and dub-influenced basslines that wouldn't be out of place on a Casino Versus Japan record. This is music designed from the ground up to be endless, continually shifting in subtle variants while keeping things anchored to a minimal recording approach. Elegant, yet restrained, Ocean Lion builds psychedelic castles out of Henry Mancini tape loops (among other orchestral sound sources) and presents the listener with a sensual experience that brings the beach and the low tide right into your living room."
