• Image of VISION OFF - Hawking the Smoke from Distant Fires CS

The second release on WS's Vague Absolutes imprint is the first physical format product from VISION OFF. Best to avoid if you are looking for anything resembling "songs," III: Hawking the Smoke from Distant Fires, is the audio equivalent of a headspace that comes from watching modern day network news, of resigning yourself to the fact that no matter where you are, you are not safe. Nature may fire the first snipe-shot to your well being, but you are nesting in reach of any number of insatiable gulping maws of a disaster capitalist horde. You better believe that those goddamn buzzards have every tool at their disposal to exploit your misery. The assembly of this release began in 2007 and was forgotten about, finally revisited and finished, ten years later. Four harsh sound collages packaged in a Riso-printed J-card.

*** The way Bigcartel sets up the shipping calculator, it is nearly impossible to calculate postage on orders of more than one item shipping to outside of the United States. That means that for orders of certain combinations of format / items, it is necessary to initially overcharge so as to not lose money on shipping. Sorry for this inconvenience but just last week I noticed that as it my shipping was set up, I was losing upwards of $12.00 ea in postage to non US based addresses for SEVERAL orders. For sustainability of the label, that cannot continue happening. What I am getting at, is that if you are overcharged for postage, I will issue a refund of the overpaid amount when I ship out your order. I will be checking every time. ***
