Time for something slightly different today. Preterite is a two person drone/folk band: Geneviève Beaulieu of Menace Ruine and experimental musician James Hamilton of the Dystonia EK label. Together they have released the 2011 album 'Pillar of Winds' through the fantastic Handmade Birds record label. The physical copy of the album comes with a beautiful fold-out booklet, including lyrics to all the songs, so please go buy one for only $12 if you enjoy this music! http://www.handmadebirds.com/store/HB...

Storms and uproar
The north wind blows
Hail and cold
In the northern zone
The bear emerges from the black fire
And the sun's rays avoid the north
In the knowledge of evil we withdraw
The north wind blows
Disturbance and dangers
Pain and relentless cold
The north is the enemy of the sun
And scorns it brilliance
For light is a living eye
And this eye is on fire
The fourth corner
Overshadows its splendor
For light is a living eye on fire
Light is honored by darkness
And the darker part serves the lighter part
Only a drop of it is an eternal glow
We ought to work against the north
And in the knowledge of evil walk the right path
Or the bear will growl within us and bring us sorrow
Hasten our fall
