about

"As consistent as he is prolific, Reece Thomas Green has released close to a dozen full-length cassettes in less than a three-year period as Alocasia Garden, not to mention just as many short-form tapes across such renowned labels as Vanity Pill (his own); Audio. Visuals. Atmosphere; Perfect Aesthetics and Vienna Press to name just a few.

A Double Life is Alocasia Garden's debut on Holy Geometry and could be his most intriguing and beautiful release yet. A short piano loop hypnotises on the tense and claustrophobic opener Mirror, while the piano returns again for the album's closing track Faces of a Quiet Land, albeit in a freer form; a sign of the artist expressing a greater sense of confidence in melody.

But don't let this softer side fool you. The standout track, side B's opener Documenting the Decay of Language, builds steadily from a dark choral drone into a crescendo of feedback and high-frequency intensity before subsiding silently back into whatever black hole it came from. A masterpiece amongst a masterful album."
