RICHARD PINHAS

ICELAND

SUPERIOR VIADUCT


Format: 2xLPs
Cata No: SV053
Barcode: 855985006765
Originally released in 1979, Iceland is Richard Pinhas’
third solo album and his first following the breakup of
Heldon. While moving away from the maximalism of his
old band, paring down Heldon’s hybrid of otherworldly
sci-fi imagery and pummeling psych-prog riffs, the journey
through Iceland is decidedly more inward.
Consisting of longer, brooding synth-based pieces as well
as short proto-industrial études and interstitial sketches,
Iceland features Pinhas’ delay-ridden electric guitar,
pulsating machine rhythms and analog synthesizer
washes—all vivid in texture and timbre, notwithstanding
an undeniably chilling ambience.
This first-time vinyl reissue includes “Wintermusic,”
an immersive 25-minute bonus track recorded in 1983 and
appearing here on vinyl for the first time. Pinhas’ excursions
channel the season’s stillness and sublimity, its majesty and
its threat. Without a doubt, one his finest moments.
Recommended for fans of Cluster, Mica Levi and Fripp
& Eno.
