CFCF treads dark waters on The River. Where the 22 year old Montreal based producer CFCF's (Michael Silver) debut album Continent (Paper Bag 2009) hinted at primal and ambient themes, The River fully transports the listener to a heart of darkness. Inspired by Werner Herzog's visual masterpiece Fitzcarraldo, The River follows a dream-like arc, lucid sound sequences from a lunatic mind.
The first pressing of The River is limited to 550 vinyl copies. The first run of jackets are printed black offset with a bronze letterpress overprint on heavy news board. Jacket concept and design by Kevin O'Neill of Will Work For Good, based loosely on the weathered map that lead Fitzcarraldo to madness and freedom.
