Product Description

Residents-Eskimo-'79 classic avant garde-NEW BLACK LP 180gr



REISSUE on black vinyl


Whether the masterminds of the avant garde soundscape band (if that is the correct term) The Residents have camped out on the Northpole in order to find inspiration for Eskimo (1979), we will never know. What we do know is that putting Eskimo on the record player is like a mini trip to cold, windy and mysterious surroundings.

The album's title is aptly chosen: when hearing the tribal drumming, chanting and cold splashes of arctic life, it makes you actually believe you're looking over the shoulder of the Inuit people. The band's members are shrouded in obscurity. They could be from outer space for that matter. Maybe this thought helps putting The Residents and their music in perspective.

We do know they were founded in the late sixties, after which The Residents continued to turn heads with their ability to stay out of musical confinements. Each and every one of their records that have been released from their debut Meet The Residents in 1974 until present (which add up to more than 60 (!) albums), is a groundbreaking effort in itself. No different for Eskimo, a highly desirable record that is an excellent starting point to discovering the ways of The Residents. Don't forget to put on your furry winter coat.
