Here is a preview track...it's one of the more "song" orientated pieces...a waltz!
Ritualistic School of Errors - Pancakes Soaked, Started Bucking
from the Resipiscent website:
"Witness avant-garde maestro Gregory Jacobsen’s fetid funland here rendered in sound. Prepared piano, cranberry sauce, strangled throat, flamenco guitar, a quivery accordion succumbs to squeak toys that feather into operatic soprano as a teetering pipe organ ushers in teutonic chorales. Music this cakey rich can only be the culmination of long, scarily obsessive years. The result, a vaudevillian feverish horror complete with narrative threads that tug at abject fear then unspool in puerile fantasy. If you dare to know where music can go, this is one orgy best entered at home and alone. Contributors include members of Cheer Accident, Black Bear Combo, and Brilliant Pebbles. Six-panel digipak features Jacobsen's wretched paintings!"
