Now the band returns with the grotesquely intangible Providence, whereby they stretch the fabric of previously trod worlds into idiosyncratic new forms and elevated levels of primal intellect [Limited pink with black and magenta colored vinyl pressing also available. Stuart Hyatt returns with another sonic wonder in the Field Works series, bringing the listener into truly uncharted acoustic territory.
Ultrasonic is part of a broader storytelling project about the federally endangered Indiana Bat. Furiously fragmented death metal rips though the reflective fabric of reality, sinking deep memory-hooks into the innermost cerebral chasms.
Her music, drenched in layers of warmth and fuzz, mines depression, devotion, power, and anxiety without reserve. The recording process was a transformative period for Ware and the album sees the influential artist reconnect with her roots, entirely on her own terms.
At its core, the album explores themes of femininity, freedom of imagination and escapism. Pacific Northwest abnormal death metal oddity Warp Chamber create a raw, nightmarish and twisted sonicscape of otherworldly cosmic horror that attends to the likes of the old school Finnish, Swedish, and American death metal scenes, while creating a putrid and celestial atmosphere through its own abominable vision.

For the first time, a group of women sisters June and Jean Millington, Alice de Buhr and Nickey Barclay wrote and sang their own songs, played their own instruments and, perhaps most importantly, rocked just as hard as any male band out there.
And, as the first all-female band signed to a major label Reprise and with superstar producer Richard Perry at the board, these four women became perhaps L. Art Feynman aka accomplished recording artist and producer Luke Temple stitches art pop, Nigerian highlife, worldbeat, and other lesser-known genres into a musical quilt that displays his unmistakable guile and eccentric songcraft.
On his sophomore album Half Price At he delivers songs that side-smile while pointing out the emotional sinkholes that whirl beneath the most overlooked, seemingly commonplace scenarios. But it also reflects her injection of stylish drama and vivid emotion into the folk landscape that inspires her, from contemporary singers H Hawkline and Julia Holter, to stalwarts Fairport Convention, Anne Briggs, Connie Converse, and Judee Sill.
Expressive urges run all through Yesterday Is Gone. I wrote about it in a tribute above. I wish you would put together a Lund family web site. Thank you for sharing the news about your grandpa. When I was in high school, near our running track, I found a book that someone had lost.
It no longer had a cover and looked like it had had a bath. The pages were yellowed and curled. I thought it was probably a dirty novel or something that some of the jocks had thrown out for the younger kids to find. It deeply affected the person I became and how I respond to difficulty, disappointment, and tragedy. I am now 41 years old with 3 children of my own, and I still have that book on my bookshelf and have read it several times since that first reading.
My condolences to her family. I am grateful for sensitivity and creativity in writing the book. I will read it to my children as well.
I wish I had thought to contact her and tell her this when she was alive. Sorry, I just read further and saw the Sidney passed on the 18th. My condolences to the kids—Mark, Lisa, and Meredith, as well as their families. I hope that you have comfort in knowing that your loved ones are together, smiling down on you. I am doing my transition training on the oncology unit. I carry the lessons I learned from Eric with me every day. I hope you guys keep up this website. This message is for the descendants of Sidney C.
I am 1st cousin, once removed to Sidney C. Lund and long time family historian and genealogy researcher. Lund or if you have trouble locatng the database. Hi I read eric to.
I,ve read the book a lot of times. Lund, but I was sorry to read that she had died. It is still a terrifying disease but there is enormous hope. I know nothing else about the author. Anyone know anything about her? Lund family. I just wanted to say that Eric was one of the most amazing books I have ever read. I would Love to hear any news about the Lund Family. I have been trying to Find pictures of their family for awhile. I would really like to see what they look like.
Your with your Son now. He was in a auto accident and laid in a coma for 10 days before he passed away. Each day is hard for me, I miss him very much. I thought I would go on the internet, checking if there are some words or something to help me face another day.

Ik hoop dat veel nederlandssprekende lezers deze site bezoeken. Ik he het boek ERIC in de loop van de laatste 25 jaar dikwijls gelezen. Ik voel me,ondanks dat ik ze niet persoonlijk ken,heel erg verbonden met de familie LUND. Mijn innige deelneming bij het overlijden van Doris en Sidney.
Veel sterkte toegewenst voor Meridith,Mark en Lisa en de rest van de familie vooral voor kleindochter Suzanna. Heeft iemand nog meer informatie over de familie Lund,de dokters die Eric behandelden werken die nog steeds in het Memorial Hospital in New York enz.
Hi, I was wondering if anyone could tell me if you can get pictures of there family, I would really like to see some. Just to get a picture of them, what they look like would be awesome… The book was awesome, I read it all the time. I had to read Eric for school, and I am so happy my english teacher picked it because it was one of the most amazing books I have ever read!! I am glad they are with there son now, but they will be missed by the world.
So if anyone could find pictures put the URL up or something, I check this site at least twice a week. Thank you Doris for putting such a wonderful book out there. I am honored to have the opportunity to pay tribute on this page to a most amazing woman and the love she shared with millions of people, for her son, Eric. I too, share a part in their story indirectly. At the age of 15, when my father told me that there was a made for TV movie about the story, I spent years trying to find a copy.
Actually, it took me seven years to finally find one. I started by writing a letter to the Library of Congress when all of my atempts had come up empty handed. I received a return letter confirming that they had no such movie on file. My father and I then proceeded to call Doris at her home in CT to ask if she could help us.
I am unsure about whether or not the Lund family would allow the movie to be reproduced and sold again if the proceeds really DID go to the ACS. A dear friend of mine found an original VHS tape on an on-line auction site a few years ago, so I have finally seen the movie. It was touching, but nothing will ever be able to really come close to the real story that Mrs.
Lund gave the world…the legacy that Eric left for us to share with each other. My deepest condolences to the Lund family, and my fondest wishes for a prosporous future. As Eric said, all we have to do is look. It is always there for us to see. What an amazing story! I lost someone very close to me to AIDS about 6 years ago. I know while they are different diseases, family, patient and everyone involved suffers the same in my mind. Everyone was so amazing, the nurses, doctors, Eric, his family, everyone, I was astonished and amazed.
In response to the tribute above. You are right. This should be made into a movie. Yes it has already been done. Besides it was made many years ago and movies are remade all the time. That would be so perfect! Hopefully someone will see these tributes that has the ability to write a script and get it done. Mark, we learned so many things from you guys while we were growing up not just the basketball rock shot while Soncho chased cars,or how to build an anatomically correct snow-woman on Mr Oravetz front yard but lessons about treating others in a compassionate way.
Really miss those days, and we remember them so fondly. Also, hard to forget dog-doo stadium. Bair Boys of Rowayton. I, too, read Eric when I was a young teenager and gave it to my mom to read. When my mom was diagnosed with the same form of leukemia in , I wrote Doris and thanked her for sharing her story and told her about my mom. To the Lund family, bless you all for the grief you must feel.
My prayers are with you. I too would be interested in seeing the movie if anyone knows what is going on with re-issuing? I first read Eric when I was barely a teenager. It impresed me tremendously, and I saved that book. Now in my 40s, I rediscovered the book in a box I was unpacking and re-read it. I cried harder than ever since now I have children to lose. Eric is of course a story about life, and how precious it it.
How to live and how to live more when the chips are down. I wanted to thank Doris for her work and discovered she had died, and now Sidney too. Find strength and peace in our embrace for all of you when those three have done so much for all of us. Thanks to the entire Lund family. It is hard sometimes to remember the past. I am now 26 and have been fighting my own cancer for five years.
Funny how some of the very same drugs used for cancer then are still being used. Unfortunately, the deleterious effects are still the same. Reading about Eric helps me to not give up. What a gift that is. Hello Everyone. I am a close friend to Mrs. His life made such an impression on me! I read it again, this time as a mother. What a different perspective I had this time. I can only hope that my life has such an impact on so many.
Doris Lund was an amazing writer and her book Eric changedmy life. I had to write a report on a book and I looked up Doris and was very sad to see that she had passed. The world has lost a great writer and a great women. Just email me and ask for them. Is Doris Lund a great writer!? I am reading Eric right now in school.
I am 12 years old and I am in seventh grade at St. James school in Stratford,CT. It was such an inspiration to me to keep on going with life and put the past in your behind.
I finished the bbok 2 days ago and started crying when I closed the book. Eric still lives spiritually and I know Doris does too. The book was written so well and it felt like I was part of the Lund family expiriencing their tragedy. Once you start, you cannot put the book down. I am so glad I read the book. May you rest in peace Eric and Doris Lund. I remember the cover — it was orange with a hand drawn image of a strong teenager, clad in swimming trunks, sitting on the beach — facing away as we looked at his back.
I leafed thru the book, read spots here at there — not really knowing the details but understanding he had been diagnosed with leukemia.
I never really read the book. It has long since vanished from my posession. For some reason I went online tonight looking for it and found it at Amazon. There was a horrific review by a very insensitive individual whom I reported to Amazon. But it made me want to buy and read the book. And then I found this weblog. The interesting thing is in I was a youth leader with my church.
There was this teenage girl, Allysen Croeni, a sixteen year old who was vibrant, alive, talented and just a sweet gem. The fall of 95 she was diagnosed with leukemia. It was devistating to hear how frail and weak and succumb to the disease after she was hospitalized.
She was one of the kids on my drama team — a trooper, a kind hearted soul who would do anything for anyone. For 3 weeks she got to come home and we were excited — perhaps she was getting better.
She died a month later from cardiac arrest in early I remember standing in the parking lot of the church on a cold blustery afternoon a half hour before the memorial and weeping, yelling at God for taking such a beautiful kid. But her time had come I suppose. I never went to the service. I only hope that she knows that I wish to remember her as she was before the illness. And that I loved her not only as her youth leader, but as her friend. Thank you, Doris, for helping a grown man come to grips with the loss of a teenager.
Perhaps Allysen has already met Eric, and Doris. That would be very comforting. Back in first year college in , i borrowed this book which had an interesting story from my friend. I instantly got hooked reading it that i must have only spent a week in finishing the entire book i was not an avid reader at that time.
Last December 26th, i was scouring the soon-to-close bookstore near my place for bargains and i again found Eric. This blog is a wonderful site for readers like me who was enthralled by a life briefly lived nearly 40 years ago yet resonates a loud echo of inspiration and triumph.
My sister ordered Eric from a school bookclub in I read the book the same year, when I was The book is now in several pieces. Every time I read it, I wonder how Eric could have died, since he was such a strong person who really wanted to live. I know that Eric and his parents are together now. God bless his entire family. I first read Eric when I was 11 years old. I am now 41 and have just re-read it for the 25th time and it is still an inspiration. I know Eric is with them now.. Does anyone have any updates on Meredith,Mark and LIsa?
Does anyone have any pictures of the Lund family? If they have I would be very interested to see them please.
Also I would love to have any news of the film Eric. Many thanks. Doris Lund was my grandmother. I was just browsing and I found this site. Thank you everyone for your blessing. I myself sometimes can hardly belive it too. Then when I find something like this website I get shaky for how truly lucky I am to have such great grandparents. We are in the process of selling the house in rowayton. I have a big collection of treasures and we have loads of fan-mail and just everything from way back to Don Harold in elementy school.
A lot of it we are sending to different places like institutes were they have memorials and collections. Thanks again, Mark Miller. The memories of our world with your family will never be forgotten…..
You are all a beacon and memories to treasure. I would love to hear from you.. My email is bswanson63 aol. Label: TraitMediaWorks Cat : 2.
Such is the case with this new release. In the first piece, '… Buts Cats Don't Care', we have an ongoing zooming sound, looped to repeat itself ad infintum, on top of which longer loops of field recordings play their own play.
In 'Can A Duck Duck? Both pieces have a slow development, which works quite well in the first piece twenty four minutes , but in the second its a bit too long, I think. Here some editing would have been in place I think. Music that one needs to go undergo rather than actively listen to. Ambient music that has a certain presence. Very nice. Otherwise I don't know anything from him.
There are three pieces on this release, all around nineteen minutes. Its sample-heavy music. Hard to say however what it is that is sampled here, or what it means, or what it wants, but it seems that a lot of soundsources are thrown into the sampler and played around with from there.
The skipping of the CD at the title track is perhaps something we heard well enough before, but that piece develops into a nice piece of ambient electronics, with its stretched out fields of sound. The other two pieces are bit more rhythmic, and have some obscured rhythm at its core and lots of other obscured sounds radio?
Maybe it all is a bit long and some more editing could have been applied in this, overall its quite nice. At times reminded me of the old Lilith works on Sub Rosa, yet less dark. Nice one. It seems to me he uses a variety of real instruments which he recorded and then transforms using computer technology. But unlike many other who would stretch it out and make it warm and glitchy, Alvarez uses a nice cut-up technique and he creates fifteen relatively short songs, all somewhere between the three and five minute mark.
You could wonder if fifteen of these sketch like, intimate pieces is not a bit too much, but it works well. Sometimes he uses drums, which give the whole thing a trippy, dubby character, such as in 'Candlelight'. I think piano and guitar are the instruments he uses most here, but also marimba, glockenspiel and voices. This too is warm and glitchy but then of an entirely different nature.
It owes much more to popmusic I guess than to the world of avant-garde and that's perhaps the best thing about it. Another surprising release on that Spanish label - check 'm out! He plays 'guitar, processed guitar, bowed guitar and laptop' in a trio with Soren Kjaergaard on church organ and Jeff Herr on drums and percussion, although I found it pretty hard to figure out what exactly his part was.
Unless of course there has been a lot of post-editing and post processing. Its recorded in a church and that's something that certainly enhances the atmospheric quality of the music. The title says it all, and its dedicated to those who discovered that continent.
This is one of those cases where I didn't hear anything spectacular new going on here, but that's not always necessary. This is quite well played, well produced and very fine ambient music - what more do you want? What I learned from the five releases is that Hardy makes different kinds of music. In some rhythm forms a great part of it, and in others pure noise is the main theme.
In 'Sober Materials 4' that is the case and its the one that I digested not very well, but the beat material on 'Sober Materials 5' are actually in a slower mode than before and as such work much, much better. Its all better worked out, but still quite raw and no doubt very much underground. Now, here I can imagine someone dancing. Quite a nice progression. So for the current release I expected either one or the other, but its neither rhythm nor and noise. Ambient might be the right word for this music of a rather lo-fi nature.
Its quite hiss based, like taped on cassette of some highly obscure sound sources - which after a few repeated listening sessions still didn't reveal their true nature.
What I learned during that repeated listening, is that its all pretty good. Two lengthy tracks of slow, minimal developmentsQuite cleverly made, obscured and mysterious music. I am not sure if this is a new direction for him or something that he does on the side, but it seems to me a road to explore further. The first one is solo by Bill Horist, who has been around for a long time, quite active, yet not always present in Vital Weekly. Here are my lists of favorite albums of As is my usual custom, I've broken this down into several categories, as I'm just not comfortable ranking unlike entities on one list.
Disclaimer alert: I heard A LOT of fine albums this year, even more than , which surprised me…but even paring it down to was a daunting task. As anal as I am about my lists and about the year in which releases should be placed, I also try to be sensible about it and take into account the fact that one needs a bit of lag time to become aware of several releases, especially those indie releases which take up most of my list.
Lastly, I did not include download-only releases on any of my lists. Yes, I understand that printing up CDs and especially vinyl is costly, but these days it really is doable for every band because manufacturing houses are all willing to do limited runs of product, particularly CDs, so that a band can do as few as , which should be easy to sell out of at shows, via boutique sites like Kool Kat and Jam, CD Baby, etc…I am very troubled by the possibility some might say inevitability of the CD going by way of the dinosaur, but I feel like I need to do my part, as little as that might be, to keep them alive.
I will say I am encouraged by the number of bands who did release physical product in , so hopefully all will continue to be well with the world. There you are, bands: a little incentive to keep the physical release alive and well. Sitcom Neighbor-Shag Gravity Works 2. Wesley Fuller-Inner City Dream 7.
