Brian Eno with Kevin Shields - The Weight Of History / Only Once Away My Son

Out of Stock

This release was a 2018 Record Store Day exclusive title.

The unexpected, fully welcome, and deliriously successful pairing of professional ex-glam sound genius Brian Eno and his new sidekick, My Bloody Valentine noise sculptor Kevin Shields.


Begging to be listened to on noise-canceling headphones or very, very loud speakers, the duo blast off with a drum track that is instantly, almost comically subsumed into a nine-minute sound-cleanse of bells, drones, and a soaring rocket flare that may be a guitar.

Ambient but hardly static, its tones and textures return throughout, as if tracing long and inaudibly developing melodies. Not immediately identifiable as either Eno or Shields' work, a rich, enveloping piece of music - Pitchfork.

12" single in full colour printed sleeve with standard paper inner, no download card.

2-track double A side 12" from the legendary sonic pioneers.
