The second of six volumes in the Verdant Acre series, and a successor to the previous volume in more ways than one. The dense, darkened forestry of the first hour seems to give way to an even deeper and more wildly overgrown part of the Acre. Triumphant horns made of dried leaves and rusted mechanical parts, now overtaken and reclaimed by nature, drone upward into a mute cloudy sky. Hundreds of years of debris uniformly coat the stereo field, each piece an echo of distant and long forgotten lifetimes. This second volume of Verdant Acre is so thick with aural dusts and detritus that it almost feels as if we are hearing the discarded shell of a time that has remained absolutely still for decades, bound by the shape of a world that has truly moved on, and filled with an epoch of longing and sadness. Limited edition of only 50 copies on black CD-Rs packaged in recycled cardstock sleeves with matte photo prints.
