Edition of only 400 copies, black vinyl.
"Originally presented as a small-run CD in 2009, Elm’s “Nemcatacoa” instantly cemented itself as the quintessential solo outing from Jon Porras (one half of the duo Barn Owl). Its dark, scorching passages left listeners in awe, helping to pave the way for the band’s oncoming meteoric rise. Here we’ve presented this masterwork on vinyl for the first time ever. Pressed in a one-time edition of 400 copies, complete with brand new artwork by Mr. Jon Porras. Remastered for vinyl by James Plotkin." - Sweat Lodge Guru
From Digitalis’ original description: “Elm is the name of Porras’ solo creations. His music retains the megasonics of Barn Owl, but finds his tutelage deep in the heart of the desert. “Nemcatacoa” is a lonesome, epic journey. Named after one of the deities of his Colombian heritage, his latest full-length (and first large-scale solo release) feels huge and endless. Walls of guitars shatter beneath the weight of the booming percussion blasts that find their way from the caves into the light. An acoustic guitar is mournfully plucked, the beginning of a procession of the dead. “Nemcatacoa” is an album begging for somebody, anybody to find and embrace. Porras is a master artist. The instrumentation at work here is even more impressive when you consider it’s played by a lone soul. Guitars, Rhodes, Harmonium, Trumpet and more echo through the caverns of the ancient Earth. Even though this album is dark and at times bleak, it never overpowers. Traversing similar aural planes as Sunn O))) and Earth, Porras is staking a claim all his own. As his voice wails over blankets of guitars, he never loses sight of the golden life ahead.”
“Unlike some drone albums, the passion and arrangements here will warrant many, many repeat plays, it’s just that sort of album. Incredible.” - Boomkat.com
