SAC-R #001: Yes Blythe – Initiate Screen Prevails

The follow up EP to Yes Blythe’s Debut album ‘Keep The Faith’ first saw the light of day as a short run cassette release on the Gnod tape imprint Tesla Tapes. ‘Initiate Screen Prevails’ is finally being given a vinyl release on Sacred Tapes. Not only the first Vinyl release for the label, kicking off an offshoot SAC-R series, but also a first vinyl release for the artist.

This 30 minute EP ranges from subtle layered field recordings to intense crushing noise created with depth and detail. The record comes packaged with printed fabric insert and risograph’d recycled card info sheet.

“Yes Blythe returns after breaking our hearts with his debut album “Keep The Faith”, making his first appearance on vinyl with this sophisticated EP. The deeply atmospheric “Travels Nerves To Freedom” showcases the producer’s intimate piano style, while “At Labyrinth Borne Sun” is a swirling and immersive sound collage.”  – Piccadilly Records
