Faith &Disease
Insularia (CD)
IR33-12
Unit price: $12.00

"A dreamy, laconic, and mature collection of work from a band regarded as Seattle's standard bearers…"
-David Slatton,
The Stranger

Description: For the fourth and newest full-length, Seattle's Faith & Disease have sculpted their finest and most focused album to date. Insularia features 11 new studio tracks, moving through "oceanic depths of sound with intelligent finesse, the sheer prettiness of their sound is more reminiscent of Mazzy Star's dispersed simplicity…*" The instrumentation is varied, including violin (Baudelaire), flute (Cocoon), Steel Pedal Guitar (Old Dusk Dakota), and slide guitar, keyboards and guest vocals from Chris and Carla of the Walkabouts. Insularia just might "lull you into a sleep of opiated dreams…"

Fortune His Sleep (CD)
IR33-02
Unit price: $12.00

Description: The definitive Faith & Disease sound is captured here on their second release, an impressive album from start to finish. Highly eclectic and different from track to track, Faith & Disease use the majestic voice of Dara Rosenwasser weaved in with acoustic and electric guitars, melodic leading bass structures, ethnic percussion, and the occasional violin, rainstick, bells, tambourine and classically-inspired baroque synth sounds. Critically acclaimed by the likes of Alternative Press, B-Side Magazine, Option, HUH, and others. Cover art: Floating Tranquility by Eric Cooley.

Faith & Disease
Beauty and Bitterness (CD)
IR33-01
Unit price: $12.00

Description: This debut album by Faith & Disease went to #1 on Seattle's popular radio station KCMU for an amazing three-months, not bad for an album culled from two different "demo tapes" personally financed and produced by the band for about $400 total ("A naïve masterpiece," according to bassist Eric Cooley). Songs range from textured gloominess ("Chandra's Lament," "Ebb and Tide") to light-hearted folk rock ("Glass Glow World," "Content Injuries") and everything in-between, yet still sounding like an even, consistent body of music. Cover art: "A Child" by Lucca Della Robia (1466).
