BLCR Laboratories reissues “愛慕 ／ 悲哀” by t e l e p a t h & HKE
An early split by dreampunk/vaporwave giants telepath and HKE is back out on BLCR Laboratories. The album is 愛慕 ／ 悲哀, which was originally released in early 2015 on the same date as the duo’s 新しい日の誕生 collaboration as 2814. In comparison, 愛慕 ／ 悲哀 is far more “ambient,” with the telepath side notably eschewing the foggy production haze of former albums for a cleaner, less beat-oriented sound. HKE’s albums feature more of the artist’s experimental/screw side, with tracks that hint at his clean electronic sound, as heard on works such as HK a few weeks prior. Both artists have six tracks on the album, and it is recommended for those who want more of the 2814 sound following last month’s release of Rain Temple. It’s available for €4 as a digital download and for €9 on a second run of transparent purple cassettes in an edition of 200 (the first run of the re-release sold out in two minutes).
