Kneeling Knave - 'Skin Presence' CS + 7" Box Available.
The final full-length Kneeling Knave release has been out for the last month or so via Chondritic Sound. Although recorded not long after 2017's debut, Compliance, it's taken some time to appear. Although I couldn't feel more distanced from the project now, I think these recordings mostly achieved what I was trying to via KK, sound-wise and also thematically. I was doing my best to convey a complicated narrative concerned with personal experiences of mental health and it's treatment, in which nothing is clear-cut. The release ends on an appropriate note of transition and what I suggest could be interpreted as hope. There is also a limited version with a 7" that has two earlier tracks.
The below review of it also appeared on reputable source for all things static-filled and churning, Night Science.
