Second Species

Under his moniker Prayer, Joe Houpert has released the follow-up to First Species, which was released just last May — and guess what? It’s called Second Species. Out on the stellar Constellation Tatsu label, Second Species is evolved and still evolving. Here, Prayer loops phrases over and over, slightly modifying them here and there and letting the natural effects of decay and echo slowly manipulate the music — like evolution… or God. Let us pray and listen to the moving electronic liturgy from the higher power that is Prayer.
