The new e.p. from Alpha Pup artist, KONE, entitled "Legend Days." A return to the days before man altered the Earth's destiny forever.
This Kickstarter drive is to help fund the pressing of my new e.p. "Legend Days" to vinyl. I am hoping to make a very small order of limited edition 10" records. It will be available worldwide digitally on May 22 on Alpha Pup Records, who are very supportive of me undertaking this solo effort. Thanks for your time and consideration. Below is a bit about the record.
"Legend Days will soon be over. Humanity is coming. No more Legend Days."
KONE follows closely on the heels of his well-received debut album "The Tractatus" with this e.p., titled "Legend Days." It is a return to a time before mankind altered the Earth's destiny permanently, when it was just the gods and the wind and the water and the land. "Legend Days" is the time when the Earth was harmoniously in balance with the physical laws of the universe.
Musically, it reflects this sort of forward regression as well. The beats are stripped down and hard-hitting. It is experimental and primal. It continues to explore remote pockets of the global music sphere, drawing influence from Polish psyche to the folk music Uzbekistan. It is a celebration of all things indigenous.
And yet it's still KONE music through and through. The drums crack harder than ever, the dirty basslines firmly remind you of the rock you are standing on, and the lead synth lines sound like experiments with saws and sines and faulty wiring. It is rumored that KONE sprinkled sand in all his equipment to get these particular sounds.
"Legend Days" is a celebration of LIfe, through acceptance of Death. It is a step towards the Light, through the Darkness. It is a breath of fresh air, when the skies are filled with ash and smoke. It is the calm between the wildfires, earthquakes, and floods.
"This record is dedicated to the memory of my brother Jovan Coleman, aka J1, aka tHE DEER. I love you, cutty."
