PROTECTION - 10 INCH EPPre-orders are now available for the limited edition debut vinyl 10" EP from PROTECTION, a new synth duo featuring long-time Brainwashed contributor Daniel McKernan and bandmate Sam Houston, based between New York and New Orleans.  Their debut EP features Little Annie on vocals for the track, "Jack/Rabbit," which is also included remixed by Bruno Coviello (formerly of Light Asylum).  This is limited to 250 copies and will be shipping in spring 2014 from Daniel's new label, Formlessness Press.

Pre-order it now here.

A note on the cover artwork of the EP: this is a manipulated photograph taken by Daniel McKernan of the tomb of Marie Laveau, the VooDoo Queen of New Orleans, in 2010 at St. Louis Cemetery #1.  The photo series was sent to Peter Christopherson, who had replied: "As luck/fate/whatever would have it I have been looking for some images that relate to New Orleans, death, and magick, for a possible US cd release combining Coil's New Backwards with the demo version we produced at Trent Reznor's Studio way back in the 90s... Would you mind if I incorporated them into the cd wallet design?"  Sadly this did not come to fruition, but one of the photos is now featured on the cover of the debut PROTECTION EP.  Marie Laveau's tomb continues to attract visitors who pilgrimage to draw three x's (XXX) on its side, in the hopes that her spirit will grant them a wish.

The EP was written & recorded by Daniel McKernan & Sam Houston in New York & New Orleans, 2011-2013.  Mix/mastered by Bruno Coviello.  "I Worry If You're Warm" also features Christiana Key (Zola Jesus, Cult of Youth, Delphic Oracle) on violin.  Hear a few of the tracks (including Brother Bruno Coviello's remix of the Little Annie vocal track) here and here.
