This is the most rando thing to ever be digitized.
What we have here is a demo version or perhaps an unmixed raw version of the song Shelter which appeared on Perfection of Desire. I’m guessing it’s a demo as it doesn’t have that kind of rushed/sped up section at the end.
The dated drum machine and sample make this all the more creepy and then you have the hushed vocals which conjure up images of Raymond Cappo aka Ragunath keeping his voice down in a dimly lit closet of a Hare Krsna temple. There’s a desperation that permeates the recording in that it sounds like a man with a message with limited tools, just some raw materials lying around and a concept.
If this was made under a pseudonym by a thin boy in Bushwick it might be featured on Pitchfork or at least be a well travelled blog post for a few months before another genre is invented by a writer looking for a niche.
Who has the Ugra Karma Demo or the rest of the Shelter Demo tracks?
