Coping With Death by Arrison Kirby (Book Review #150)

Coping with Death and Destruction by Arrison Kirby available now!

Hey everyone. El Deth is in flux as always. We’re hoping to overhaul the website soon, with easier access to our history of sessions. It won’t be anytime really soon but we are on our way.

In the meantime, Arrison Kirby has taken a break from music to write a book!

Here is the blurb:

The book is a collection of twelve, high concept, multi-part short stories reflecting on and inspired by the death and transformation of the year 2016. It serves as an elegy for that period of time, submerging into dark themes of loss, extracting what irreverence and hopefulness it can, and reflecting it through a prism of an eternal universe. Sorted astrologically, the stories sometimes span generations, depicting conflict based around such themes as apocalypse, dreams, aging, dying, ghosts, the afterlife, animals, nature, global politics and pop culture. Location also varies, taking the reader through several American states to North Korea, Africa, the Philippines and beyond – often peppered with heavy doses of Southern Gothic sensibility.

In the book, you can read about religion based on pop science fiction and fantasy, a 1960’s lounge singer marginalized by the Beatles, or a mixture of drugs that allows the user to summon the dead. Several of the tales blend fact into the fiction, nodding to the cultural giants whose deaths loomed over the year 2016: David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Prince, Carrie Fisher and others. These are detailed and developed stories, intended to instill within the reader a sense of timelessness and a comfort in the notion of infinity.

Lords of Rap Volume 1: Just da Tip by Hypenkrünk to be released 1.28.2014

Lords of Rap Volume 1: Just Da Tip is the debut release by Knoxville based rap and psychedelia group, Hypenkrünk. Though they use aliases for this project, Hypenkrünk is a collaboration between musicians from across the music spectrum. The players hail from the backgrounds of hip hop, (Flashmob, Flack Jacket) electronica, (Star Mountain), jazz (Deep Green) and prog rock (Obadiah).

The lyrics of vocalist, MC Realtree, are as prurient as they are suggestive and subliminal. Where in one moment, he may be rolling in the dirt with an animal nature and the lowest of brows, in the next he is proposing an evolution of the collective consciousness and sharing glimpses into other worlds.

These lyrics overlay a bed of music that is at times danceable, industrial, improvisational, irreverent, ambient, rigid, rocking, progressive, gangsta and dancehall. It could be comparable to a Nine Inch Nails album, produced by Nigel Godrich and Dan the Automator, featuring 2 Live Crew in one ear and Outkast in the other…or maybe Sage Francis.

This is the twentieth release from the El Deth recording label. Get it online and in limited hard form on January 28th, 2014.
