…AND THIS IS WHY I SPEAK TO YOU IN PARABLES
VINYL DETAILS: 200 GRAM AMERICAN VINYL , PICTURE DISC WITH ORIGINAL ART ON BOTH SIDES, LIMITED EDITION OF 500
The first recording of White Orange as a complete group documents this Portland band’s full-on plunge into the middle of the third eye. A 12” picture disc single limited to 500 copies, the album includes “the middle of the riddle,” the abbreviated pop version of “…and this is why I speak to you in parables,” and the full 13-minute version in all its psychedelic glory. White orange is transmuting such bands as Kyuss, My Bloody Valentine, and Syd Barrett into its own brew of heavy psychedelic soda pop. One drink, and the doors of perception just might get blown off. Cover & disc art originally painted by (or for) Aleister Crowley. Side B art by Raul Casillas.
"Never have I seen a more elaborate two-song set-up" - Hardcore Norfolk
"Heavy, pounding, beautifully produced, a ruling rhythm with a hint of tribal drive" - Andrew Earles
"If there were a such thing as post-Tool prog-rock that actually retreats from the technical mega-prowess of that band and zones in on heavy riffs, screeching wahs, recurring guitar melodies that will linger in your mind like the ghost of Pixies past and a slow, solid slab of BEEFcake brawn, I guess this tune (backed by a shorter version) would be it." - Signal to Noise Magazine
SIDE A: "…and this is why i speak to you in parables" (13:13)
