the lentils - "my pillow lava (complete trilogy)" : 2xcassette
[cassette]

double cassette release which encompasses a trilogy of recordings. my pillow lava parts : negative one, and part one were released on LP the past few years via feeding tube records. an brilliant and beautiful collection of song via disjointed pop and jangle. with this release we see those two record presented, along with the extended play part zero : "zeros revenge" - which really sorta solidifies, and dare i say it is the crux of what this whole project meanders towards. i dont know when and what was written for this, but i know this is a couple years in the making, and something that has been bouncing around lukes (the lentils) head for some time. this may be a sort of passion project...something off the cuff of more fleshed out recordings. for those who dont maybe know, the lentils are post happy jawbone family band, a brilliant retort of the brattleboro vermont / massachusetts conglom scene. the lentils now derive from LA - with the sun pouring on their skin. but this boxset is anything but sunshine. with songs like "please, put down the gun" and "a pocketfull of blood" - there seems to be some heavy stuff here. its hidden in a warped confine of pop display, and horn enchantment, but it struggles with itself at times, and opens up a world to crawl in. limited to an edition of 100 copies in full color clamshell boxes, with liner notes.
