Record Label: Ostgut Ton
In time for the 20th anniversary of his label Hospital Productions, Dominick Fernow offers the first release of his techno-focused moniker Vatican Shadow on Ostgut Ton. The Cocteau Twins/This Mortal Coil-channeling, beatless widescreen opener "They Deserve Death" and the two collateral club/dancefloor tracks "Rubbish Of The Floodwaters" and "Weapons Inspection" offset each other by reincarnating the tape manipulation that laid the foundation of Vatican's first performances with analog hardware and minimalist midi-dissection. Produced with Josh Eustis. Artwork by Berlin-based photographer Christian Vagt, taken from his Softex series.
