Catalogue No.: FR115LP
Release Date: 19th March 2021
Genre: Rock, Experimental
Reissue of hard to find debut album of “heaven metal” artist… First time on double vinyl at 45rpm… Following the release of critically lauded second album Forever…. Remastered for vinyl by Nicholas Wilbur. On the heels of Midwife’s 2020 sophomore album, Forever, The Flenser is pleased to offer a new vinyl edition of her debut Like Author, Like Daughter, remastered as a double LP in a gatefold jacket. Like Author, Like Daughter is a portrait of Madeline Johnston’s final year as a resident of Denver’s famed D.I.Y venue Rhinoceropolis, which closed in a rash of politically motivated assaults on creative spaces across the United States. The album internalizes loss, addiction, and abandonment and wrings them through distorted power chords, melancholy leads, and sheets of drone to create building, aching monuments to past-selves and lost relationships as positivist statements of resilience and self-love. It’s a record that is impossible to listen to without a lump in the throat. All songs on this release were written by Johnston between November, 2015 and January, 2017. It was performed and recorded by her and Tucker Theodore in Denver at Rhinoceropolis and INAMBULANCE in Olympia, WA.
