about

from the original press release:

As the title suggests, this 29 track CD is a collection of 4 mini-albums recorded and self-released in micro editions throughout the middle of the last decade.

BODY OF JOHN THE BAPTIST is the work of Nathanael Markham and Jamie Hepler, operating out of Asheville, NC. We first became aware of Nathanael's work from a poorly attended (and staggeringly beautiful) loft show with ASHRAE FAX and DREKKA in 2002.

Eight years later, Nathanael Markham fulfills his destiny and officially joins the Bluesanct roster. Joining 4AD bliss arrangments to beautiful acoustic melodies, BoJtB produce brief postcards of sound, sharing little moments with devastating beauty... artful, emotive ambient noise with distinct pop melodies that rattle around in the listener's head after the album ends.

Classic reference points would be the early cassette work of HIS NAME IS ALIVE, the interludes of THIS MORTAL COIL or the desert pining of SOUL WHIRLING SOMEWHERE... contemporary examples may find solidarity in the internal works of CAETHUA, the small songs of ATLAS SOUND or ARIEL PINK, or the apocalypse reverb DREKKA.

"Surreal lyrics rise from the obscurity of the layered tracks, surfacing clearly through the delicious haze of watery, echoing synthesizer, guitar and reverb. There's a sweetness to Markham's voice that transcends preciousness, exactly complementing the material's sleepy, languid sense of longing."

Ltd to 300 copies, in a gorgeous hand-made gatefold gold metallic screen-printed sleeve.


Download contains JPGs of the original front/back/inside cover art, and one-sheet.
