Eluvium continues the ethereal blitz with new Life Through Bombardment box set

Is the “bombardment” to which Eluvium is referring one of emotions? Because if you were one of the lucky few able to acquire the first Life Through Bombardment in 2009, chances are, you just wept and wept upon your initial gazing of its stupendous book-like package, which did a wonderful job of fooling the hell out of nosy shelf perusers (assuming that’s where you put it). Then came the music itself, and silly purchasers, if you’re buying an Eluvium release of this magnitude, you should know to expect a literal eruption of tear ducts, whereby the only recourse is to let them drain like an anatomical sump pump. Inevitably, a complete siphoning happened at some point during the package’s explicit hours of listening.

Remember, that was back in 2009, and the Portland-based Matthew Cooper has been plenty active since then, so obviously that necessitates a second volume of compiled ambient wonder. Life Through Bombardment Vol. 2 is set to ship “on or around” December 15 in an edition of 1000, and it contains seven LPs tracking Eluvium’s work since 2007’s Copia. This will be the first chance to experience these albums on vinyl, and they’ll be accompanied intra-book-like-package by a poster and an MP3 download of the whole collection.

$150 seems about right. Pre-orders are facilitated here.
