Excelsius Minor is a haunted house of an album, full of looming mysteries, told in hushed words around a campfire somewhere outside eternity. Portland, Oregon's Adderall Canyonly is primarily known as an eclectic and multi-talented synthesist, often delving into melodic construction or rhythmic ecstasies on a range of releases for labels like Field Hymns and Tranquility Tapes. Synthesizers nestle neatly beside evocative guitar work and Rhodes melody. Imagine unearthing a forgotten John Carpenter ghost story, the old Betamax weathered from sitting in an abandoned lighthouse near the foggy sea. You put this tape into your trusty Super Beta machine and the tracking has shot the images to abstraction, leaving only the soundtrack which echoes Carpenter and Howarth, Goblin and the Italo circuit, among an everflowing prog-minded propulsion. But there's something else here too, the tape is imbued with a supernatural force, the lighthouse is glowing, and you can't... stop... listening...

Presented in an edition of 100 pro-dubbed and imprinted cassettes designed by RCN's Curt Brown.
