To commemorate DM Stith’s first US tour, Asthmatic Kitty released a limited edition one-sided LP featuring three exclusive recordings from Stith, as well as songs from tourmates Inlets and Silje Nes. The opening track, “Spirit Ditch”, a song by Sparklehorse, has become a favorite at Stith’s live show. Stith’s version opens up from a cryptic pastoral folk song into billows of slippery choral curlicues, but takes a dark turn after the final chorus into groaning bass peals. Also included is a demo of Riverbody and Lacuna D, the fourth in the Lacuna series of instrumentals begun in Heavy Ghost Appendices. This beautiful LP is limited to 300 copies and designed, signed and numbered by DM Stith.
