about

I first found out about If Thousands in 2001 from Nathan Amundson (Rivulets). He told me something to the effect of, “There’s this band in Duluth that should be on Silber.” He was right & we’ve gone on to put out three of their albums. So I’m really pleased to make available their long out of print & difficult to find first album. Here’s what I had to say about Candice Recorder all those years ago…
“Wow. This is really good. I really like this band. Minimalist drone, aggressive ambient, electro-acoustic, organic, whatever you call it to describe it doesn't change this from being a great record. These are all instrumentals & all great. I want to listen to this album while driving through Nebraska. Very soothing built from guitars & synthesizers with very little percussion. Anyone who likes pieces better than songs should buy this. Here's the timeline path where I think this record finds its place (1) Sonic Youth – Confusion is Sex (2) My Bloody Valentine – Loveless (3) lovesliescrushing – bloweyelashwish (4) If Thousands – Candice Recorder. I know it's shocking to hear me say this, but this band probably beats out The Bodylovers.”
Somewhere between ambient, drone, avant jazz, shoegaze, & experimental noise is where Candice Recorder record lies. Probably their darkest album & a must listen for fans of bands like Coil & Goblin.
