New Tim Hecker Album
2013-07-17 by MisterTornado CONTRIBUTOR | 46 Comments

Those still wandering rolling pastoral shires with Ravedeath, 1972 in your ears, it's time to unplug and make the long journey home. Following the theme of every artist in the history of ever releasing a new album in 2013, Tim Hecker has just announced a brand new album entitled Virgins, and it will be out October 14th on Kranky. Hecker has been quoted in saying the new album, "employs woodwinds, piano and synthesizers towards an effort at doing what digital music does not do naturally — making music that is out of time, out of tune and out of phase.” And on that note, I'd like to announce that The Church of Hecker will not be meeting this Thursday, instead understanding that you will be basking in a deep moment of silence from this news.

Virgins Tracklist:

1. Prism
2. Virginal I
3. Radiance
4. Live Room
5. Live Room Out
6. Virginal II
7. Black Refraction
8. Incense at Abu Ghraib
9. Amps, Drugs, Harmonium
10. Stigmata I
11. Stigmata II
12. Stab Variation

At the time of reading this news article, this young user was rubbing his prostate all over a church altar and chucking semen at a cross in glorious anticipation of Tim Hecker. m/
