From Black Horizons:
'A fascinatingly unique new project from the Persistence In Mourning camp, featuring Andy Lippoldt joined by Justin Summers, of Australia. That being said this is a long distance collaboration that also goes places that PIM doesn't. The heavy, raw, noisy bedroom-level production remains, but the influences are broader and more forthright. Take blues, dark folk, even country, and siphon it through a gritty industrial filter and you might start to begin to describe their sound. Four panel j-card on black linen stock with silver offset printing that has a die-cut front panel that peaks through to a 2-sided, four panel insert in full color featuring the foreboding, dark landscape selection of photography from Gretchen Heinel.
Edition of 100 on purple tapes with silver labels.'
Review excerpt from Black Metal and Brews:
...the ugliness is often more in the feeling than in the execution, but it sinks right to the gut either way, like a poorly made meal or regret.
This album’s slow burn is one of melancholy and uncertainty, a touch of isolationist folk and gnarled industrial grit that shouldn’t work but both come from the same hideous, personal place. There’s something about the pacing and feeling of the whole thing that makes it feel like a tiny eternity, one in which the listener can easily get lost. At the junction of self-loathing, anxiety, and the regret of time and age, Brown Snake Kills Dog buries its collective weary head in layers of static and hissing that hide the delicacy and nakedness of the root compositions that carry the album forth.
