Video Premiere - "I Live in Filth" by Tristan Welch

I have a feeling that there’s going to be a lot of music releases moving forward that present a sort of treastise on where we are in the world right now. I mean, there’s already been a bunch of them, and I can safely add Washington, D.C. artist Tristan Welch’s Temporary Preservation to that list.

Produced solely with electronically treated guitar, here we have an album that’s kind of ambient, kind of drone, yet more than just that. Welch’s day job is as a funeral director, and that reflects in the music. It’s sometimes dirge-like, but I didn’t find it completely without warmth. This album at times almost feels like it’s trying to give the listener a semblance of hope that is most welcome in the current, troubling times we live in. Kind of like how a funeral director would console the family of someone recently departed. There’s a sense of inevitable finality in many of these tracks, I mean, that’s how life works. But maybe there is something else, something brighter...

Premiering here, we’ve got the video for “I Live in Filth,” which pops up around the album’s halfway point. This artistically-minded, nicely minimalistic animated piece conveys a lot of the ideas I conjure from Welch’s music. Namely, that there is a form of rebirth that springs from death and destruction.

Check out the video below. Temporary Preservation releases on April 30th. Head over here to preorder the album.
