CEDAR DREAMER "SOLASTALGIA" CD ***A NEW RELEASE NOW AVAILABLE IN THE STORE***




 Initial pressing of 300 now available in the store!

Yielding no connection and not to be confused with former Glass Throat Recording artists Cedar Spirits, I’d like to take a moment and introduce the latest member of the GTR family Alex Freilich and his kindred spirited intent of sacred breath soundscapes under the moniker of Cedar Dreamer. Glass Throat Recordings is honored and deeply grateful to be releasing this monumental work known as Solastalgia exclusively through the CD and cassette formats. Showcasing all original photography courtesy of Alex, here is what Cedar Dreamer had to say regarding the journey of Solastalgia.

"Solastalgia is a new word to describe a familiar sensation: the psychological effects of living through environmental upheaval and loss. Brought into being throughout a period of intense personal anguish, Solastalgia is the darkest and most cohesive Cedar Dreamer offering to date. Slow building loops lead to crescendos of euphoric trance. Dark ambient minimalism interplays with scintillating choral harmonies. The four movements contained herein were created almost entirely by voice and acoustic instruments, without electric guitars or keyboard synths. By returning to the grounding properties of voice and breath, Solastalgia captures an intimate journey along the healing path.

The creation of this work was a bitter but necessary medicine, and it is now offered here in the spirit of the Gift."

Featuring two Glass Throat Recording artists At the Head of the Woods and Blood of the Black Owl, both of whom shared recently unreleased works for this crucial benefit collection.

Taken from the Orb Weaver Collective's Bandcamp release synopsis:

"We are pleased to reveal to you all our newest endeavor,
Woven Branches: A Musical Benefit for the Yanomami

To be released 12/20/2020 

This compilation of songs was curated with the desire to raise awareness to the struggles brought to the Yanomami and Ye'kwana people of the Amazon through continued colonization. Currently 20,000 gold miners are illegally settled and actively mining in Yanomami territories. Not only are they destroying the rainforest sacred to the Yanomami but also thoughtlessly spreading Covid-19, which is devastating to these Indigenous communities. Like many of the epidemic diseases (Xawara) spread over the last several decades, Covid-19 is non-Indigenous and the Yanomami do not have the ability to fight it with the medicines of their forest. They are struggling to obtain the healthcare needed to fight this sickness and are requesting help to not only put pressure on Brazilian officials to withdraw the miners, but to also raise funds in their fight against this disease. 

So we offer some new and potent music to you all including sonic offerings from Blood of the Black Owl, Paul "Che oke ten" Wagner, At the Head of the Woods, Loam and MAW. Each one of these carefully crafted songs reflects deep reverence for the natural world. We humbly offer the medicine of our hearts to express solidarity and raise funds in aiding the Yanomami in their advocacy for a home free of colonial disease. From the rainforests of the Pacific Northwest, to the rainforests of the Amazon basin, we stand with you. 

ALL proceeds from this digital release will be offered to the Miners Out, Covid Out campaign as support to the Yanomami and Ye'kwana!"

Please go visit minersoutcovidout.org to sign their petition, share their message or to donate directly!


Thanks folks for taking the time.

It's hard to believe it's been 25 years now since the inception of all things Glass Throat Recordings. I'd like to take a moment and express my deepest appreciation and gratitude towards those few of you, I've had the honor and privilege of working with, not to mention those of you yet to come. Some of these individuals becoming family in the deepest of ways. Truly amazing. I want to thank all the true GTR supporters long standing and new for all the years of interest and downright love towards these soundscapes of mystery. You know who you really are and my love and warmth to you all.

In a nut shell, within this time period, I've watched a certain release launch an entire movement, while others fall into varying self proclaimed top ten lists of "most influential" of their respective yet particular genre specifics. I guess for still maintaining a very strict boutique discography aesthetic and virtually unknown to many, I find these accolades quite incredible!

All that being said, I wanted to mention along with this 25th milestone, throughout the year and certainly into next, I'll be offering some new releases. Some of which I'm still held hostage by the artists, waiting for them to be finished and the proverbial green light given towards an announcement of some kind. It's litterally been a decade or more for three of these upcoming releases. One of which being my own as some of you are aware, and I thank you for your patience regarding that. The Cycle of the Raven Talons debut "A Medicinal Musical" WILL BE RELEASED this year within three different versions too! Deluxe gatefold CD, Deluxe gatefold Cassette and a 25th anniversary Limited Edition Box Den containing both formats previously mentioned and quite similar to that of the Moss and Memory Den from back in 2006.


In other news, yielding no connection and not to be confused with former GTR artists Cedar Spirits, I'd like to take a moment of your time and introduce the latest member of the GTR family Alex Feilich and his kindred spirited intent of sacred breath soundscapes under the moniker of CEDAR DREAMER. Glass Throat Recordings is honored to be releasing on both deluxe gatefold CD and Cassette his monumental work known as "Solastalgia". Release date forthcoming...

Here is what Alex had to say regarding his craft:


"Solastalgia is a new word to describe a familiar sensation: the psychological effects of living through environmental upheaval and loss. Brought into being throughout a period of intense personal anguish, Solastalgia is the darkest and most cohesive Cedar Dreamer offering to date. Slow building loops lead to crescendos of euphoric trance. Dark ambient minimalism interplays with scintillating choral harmonies. The 4 movements contained herein were created almost entirely by voice and acoustic instruments, without electric guitars or keyboard synths. By returning to the grounding properties of voice and breath, Solastalgia captures an intimate journey along the healing path. The creation of this work was a bitter but necessary medicine, and it is now offered here in the spirit of the gift."
