about

“New addition to the unpurposely growing list of Le Petit Mignon releases featuring contemporary defunct projects, this time presenting “The Second To Last Plague” by Helaas, a quartet originally founded in Berlin in 2011 by Ratbag (electric guitar), Bex (electroacoustic bass guitar, vocals), Niedowierzanie (cello) and Yvan Volochine (computer).

The release offers two long thrilling pieces, a lava of subtle distorted guitar swells, progressive noise, deep and haunting string sounds and captivating voices. The music of Helaas is here both fierce and calming, a bipolar composition clash between fear and relief. Breathtaking.

Edition of 100 pro-duplicated black cassettes with black imprint, housed in a double-sided fold out A3 poster, hand-stamped and numbered, sealed by a strip of Kumihimo cord. Recorded at N.K, Berlin. Mixed by Bex. Artwork by Insultor. Total duration: 26min. Includes free download code.”
