Tim Hecker - Virgins
This variant is currently sold out
"...it’s still inspiring to hear an artist—especially one who started out as mellow as Hecker—double down and make a statement so confrontational. Once haunted, now he’s the one who haunts." - Pitchfork (8.3)
"Hecker's abstractions have never been more expressive than they are on Virgins, and his containers have never been more fraught. His main compositional principle might have come from the late philosopher Marshall Berman: All that is solid melts into air. There's an exhilarating bleakness at the center of Virgins — the hollow at the heart of all things, nibbling inexorably away." - Spin (9)
"Virgins is challenging, unsettling… it’s everything real life ends up being while we pine for moments of mindless escape, warming glows or even the feelings we don’t want to have as we explore our own twisted, dark fantasies. This record was exactly what I needed to get out of history, and into healing." - Herohill
