Regret is an Empty Garden (Recorded 23 March & October 2014)

This album slowly came together throughout the year, though most of the dates are lost. I simplified them above for my own sanity. Back to the ambient side of things, and this is the first album since VIII not to feature a drone track. It's also the shortest album since Paesaggio da Sogno, but at 64:19, it's hardly a short listen.

I found it more difficult than usual to come up with a title this time around. I almost called it Still Feel Haunted, in reference to a case of unrequited love from earlier this year, but sounded too emo. For a lark I almost called it Adrienne Rich Sucks Cocks in Hell, but that would be too edgy and immature. That said, if I ever start a grindcore band, that will be what I call it.
