Coming Soon: Sypha Nadon: Society of the Spectacle [MZR033]

Coming in May from Mauve Zone Recordings: Sypha Nadon: Society of the Spectacle [MZR033]
This 28 track, 2 disc anthology will mark the 5th and final release of the SN archival series of 2015.
Disc 1 contains the "Society of the Spectacle" album of 2003. A number of tracks off it have previously appeared on releases from the Mauve Zone Recordings/This Plague of Dreaming netlabel, but I wanted them to be heard here in their original context.

Disc 2 is an odds & ends collection of material that runs the gamut from 2003-2009, almost all of which have never been released (save for the "Esoteric Excretion" EP of 2004). Some highlights include an unused song from the "Threnody for Zumb Zumb" sessions ("Kumina Disco"), two unused songs from the "Our Lady of the Flowers of the Red Night" sessions ("This Great Satanic Hologram" and "Alone in the Garden of Gethsemane"), and "Flowers of Evil," a dramatic rendition of one of Baudelaire's poems set to music.

With the release of this album, I think it would be safe to say that probably around 90% of all the songs I recorded under the SN banner prior to 2005 would now be available to the public in one capacity or another (2005 being the year of the first "official" SN album releases). So everything would be up to date.
