BLACKEST038: Six Six Seconds – ‘Tearing Down Heaven’   

sixsixseconds-highres

Blackest Ever Black presents a very necessary stand-alone release for Six Six Seconds‘Tearing Down Heaven’, which originally appeared on the 2012 Downwards compilation So Click Heels.

blackest038-packshot-cargoWritten and performed in Berlin by the elusive Eden, and deftly recorded and mixed by Karl O’Connor, ‘Tearing’ was the comp’s stand-out: a piece of drugged, darkly rapturous dream-pop in which the abyssal swoon of shoegaze meets a harsher, more pernicious order of psychedelic rock minimalism.

This 10”/digital edition on Blackest Ever Black features a slightly extended version of ‘Tearing Down Heaven’, and a stunning new “reprise”, which homes in on the original’s roaring, phantasmic electronics, unravelling its complex webs of feedback and high-end scorch into a masochistic drone-raga for eternally thwarted lovers.
