Corpsekisser "Cry Laughing"

The first time the three members of Silk Flowers interacted musically was August 10, 2006 in Portland Oregon, when No Age, Soiled Mattress & the Springs, Burrito Pillow, and Corpsekisser played together at Foodhole. Peter and Aviram were in Soiled Mattress, along with eternal genius Matthew Thurber, and Corpsekisser was/is Heather and I.
I am very excited to announce that Fred Thomas' Life Like Records has just released the Corpsekisser LP. Fred also just posted a really sweet and I think accurate description of the record:
Corpsekisser encapsulates the mindset of the troubled child that doesn't want to feel better. You can hear parts of the so sick you feel euphoric sounds of early 90's Siltbreeze while the male/female tandem vocals and too-hazy-to-be-brutal recording calls to mind "Twin Infinitives" era Trux.
The record is limited to 200 copies and comes with a very informative insert. Also here is a music video:
