wife - standard nature (12inch vinyl)


ARTIST // wife
LABEL // profound lore (us)
CAT // pfl171ep


Colored vinyl edition. Wife is the solo electronic music project of multi-instrumentalist producer James Kelly, also known as the mastermind behind forward-thinking acclaimed post-black metal band Altar Of Plagues. Starting with the Stoic EP in 2012 via Left_blank, Wife signed with respected electronic music label Tri-Angle Records (The Haxan Cloak, Forest Swords, Evian Christ, etc.) for his debut full length What’s Between in 2014 (co-produced by The Haxan Cloak). A more song-oriented, electronic-pop affair, that album quickly established Kelly as a producer of note alongside his aforementioned peers, while he subsequently became more active on the live circuit. With Standard Nature, Kelly has created a bridge between What’s Between and the more experimental aura of his first EP. The result is the best produced material yet—heavy, cacophonous, more intense and dynamic sounds layer through meticulously crafted electronics, samples and beats.
