1. Product Details

Pressed on 180-gram vinyl includes download code. Limited to 300 copies. Brothers Alexander and Austin Peru first met Andres Cuatroquesos in a small boys boarding school in Menen Belgium. Although their battering strobe light that features in their crushing live show isnt literally in your front room as you listen to the record its certainly there in spirit as the band expertly guide you through eight tracks of hulking riffs drawn-out drones ethereal vocals and cyclical drum patterns. Like great experimentalists such as This Heat Swans and Liars before them Vision Fortune are constantly moving forward. Mas Fiestas con el Grupo Vision Fortune is an album borne out of desperate economic uncertainty loosely based on John Kays infamous Parable of the Ox - itself a thinly veiled allegory for unbridled capitalism. The album represents the tragic life and death of the aforementioned ox whose weight is solely determined by the aggregated wisdom of the crowd. The music contained within embodies both the self-interested nature of hysterical spectators and the agonizing sense of culpability following the animals eventual demise. XXII perfectly encapsulates the emotional strain found in Kays observation - the constant push and pull of electronic interference and rhythmic tension in direct juxtaposition with the misplaced market opportunism of XX. Similar frictions are found in the creaking repetition of XVII - two mismatched guitars compete for attention over its seven-and-a-half minutes like a couple of bitter attendees quarrelling at a country fair. Meanwhile the glacial consumerist meditation of XVI is the first of several pieces seeking to replicate the sullen ambience of small-town apathy and greed. XIV perhaps one of the most immediate of tracks on the album brings to mind the inevitable pitfalls of animal husbandry - the creature itself growing gaunt and sick before the owners eyes slowly morphing into an altogether different beast. The album concludes with the elegiac paean to solitude XIII - an empty market scraps of uneaten vegetables blowing through a muddy town center its main attraction nowhere to be found.
