11069554_1059451010737249_5466737287583053449_nDeathwish will release “Full Cold Moon” for the first time on 12”LP vinyl format with an alternate cover (a CD collection was released via Heartworm Press in 2014).

“Full Cold Moon” is a compilation of EP recordings originally individually released in 2013, now presented as one collection; “A Little Death to Laugh”, “Oceans With No End”, “God Made the World”, “Black Boots”, and “Nausea, the Earth and Me”. Notably this is also the first vinyl appearance of the song “Dandelion” as well as the entire “Nausea, the Earth and Me” EP (previously only available on limited CD and Digital formats). This is Cold Cave at it’s most artistically skeletal, similar to the celebrated “Cremations” and “Love Comes Close” releases. Twelve minimal compositions driven by Eisold’s synth derived hooks, alluring vocals, and compelling character.

ROME-Selected Lyrics 2005-2015 by Jerome Reuter

Rome Cover

Heartworm Press is honored to announce the release of ROME-Selected Lyrics 2005-2015 by Jerome Reuter. This chapbook collects fifteen of Reuter’s brilliant and unique lyrics spanning his recorded output and the words to one unreleased song. Reuter’s lyrics are a personal favorite of ours and we are thrilled to present them in this medium. Edition of 200 copies, hand numbered. Heartworm #63 available for pre-order in the store now.

Luxembourgish singer-songwriter Jerome Reuter founded ROME in 2005 and has since recorded and released many groundbreaking albums in the underground folk and post-industrial music world. ROME’s musical and lyrical world is genuinely unique, blending traditional songwriting craftsmanship, unorthodox arrangements and fine poetry into one impressive avant-garde package that combines post-punk, chanson, dark ambient, apocalyptic folk, martial industrial and cold wave. Over a series of remarkable concept albums, the Luxembourgish artist has developed a unique ‘poetry of longing’ which rings out from the dark melancholic mist of rootlessness and which gives expression to a unique brand of modern-day forlornness.

Reuter’s songs are rooted just as much in the tradition of his chansonier heroes like BREL and FERRÉ, as in the darker brands of (post-)industrial music culture. Rome’s lyrics are inspired by world literature from William Burroughs to Paul Bowles, from Peter Weiss to Ernst Jünger, from Camus to Genet. Reuter’s frequent use of collage and sampling techniques serves to create a new kind of intertextuality of word and sound. The lyrical beauty of Reuter’s compositions, the depths of his poetry and the complex experimental arrangements make ROME an unusually challenging musical experience.

ROME will be performing in the USA this April.
