Black Mold 

Snow Blindness is Crystal Antz (Flemish Eye)

Chad VanGaalen really didn't need to assume the Black Mold moniker for this album, very much a recording by him and for his listeners, right down to the song titles and cover illustrations. On his previous records he'd already brought beautiful electronic soundscapes to bear on his skill for melody. Here, the melodies are truncated, like vignettes or studies. Once established, they're mere launching points for longer explorations. Songs vary widely in length, flowing into one another. The best sequence has to be "No Dream Nation," "Pristine Boobies" and the title track.
