After resurrecting As The Crow Flies — the seminal debut solo outing from Neurosis’ STEVE VON TILL, initially released in 2000, and brought back into print on CD in May of this year — Neurot Recordings this week unveils the first-ever vinyl edition of the album.
What was the first non-Neurosis recording to see release as part of the Neurot family, this year’s reissue of As The Crow Flies has been unveiled precisely thirteen years after its initial release. Bearing a vast contrast to Neurosis’ massive, plodding riffing and percussion, the album instead feels more like a mental excursion into the outer realms of consciousness; an ambient, eclectic, organic and overall honest harvest from the mind of its creator. Bearing slightly updated artwork and packaging like the CD version, VON TILL‘s maiden solo release will now see a proper vinyl pressing, available on deluxe 180-gram wax, in a pressing limited to 500 pieces direct through Neurot only. Both versions are available HERE.
The album is streaming in its entirety at Decibel Magazine joined by some insight on the inception and lifespan of the LP’s seven songs by their creator. Listen to all of As The Crow Flies and more RIGHT HERE.
