I found an old mp3 copy. I think this is legit, but very rare. Droney, dark ambient stuff from 2003, sweet as always - definitely sounds like the place they were at electronically in that era. Mentioned in two interviews. They reused the two final tracks for DSE on the Dextronaut reissue in 2006.
atropine is a hoax as well open it up in reaper and put it at 4.0 rate it sounds to be a bunch of random film sound tracks or something but i mean maybe they could of made the instruments themselves and slowed it down but who knows
The band are notorious for a series of lies and rumors spread by the band's primary songwriter SGL (Josh), including a supposed break-up, a reformation, making up albums and demos that never existed, acts of ecoterrorism, being committed in an insane asylum, and dramatic live performances. Josh would later admit that these various claims were falsified in an interview with an Italian fanzine.
Velvet Cacoon's shoegaze/psych-folk recordings were stolen albums. The demo "How the Last Day Came and Stayed then Faded into Simulated Rain" was almost completely stolen from Korouva's Shipwrecks & Russian Roulette. (Korouva's album has ten tracks, while Velvet Cacoon's demo has nine, although two tracks that can be found on Korouva's Myspace are not on the Velvet Cacoon demo).
That's right, they're even better. Though really, I think I like 'P aa opal Poere Pr. 33' as much as the first Clair Cassis album. They're both underrated masterpieces. And you can kind of hear the evolution into Clair Cassis on that record, with the leading high pitched bass line of 'Marylux'.
So whatever happened to this band? It's been 10 years since Genevieve blew up. I was quite a hardcore fan back then, trying desperately to look up their fake releases like "dying celestial bodies". Are there any photos out there of the actual musicians that are real? Any interviews within the past few years that once and for all unravel the mystery behind this band? In any case, I still think Genevieve is an incredible album.
dxm is for 13 year olds who cant get real stuff and for people who want to or are stupid enough to become brain damaged from triple cs. not surprised to see velvet cacoon fans writing about wimpy crap like that.
