Background/Info: The Californian collective Common Eider, King Eider strikes back with a ‘special’ work, which has been announced as the first chapter from a ‘duology’. The album has been announced as one of the band’s most accomplished productions and is meant as ‘a sprawling, audial exploration of wounds at once physical and spiritual, social and societal, natural and environmental’. Content: The work features dark sonic corridors filled with icy, blasting sound treatments.
The common eider (pronounced /ˈaɪ. dər/) (Somateria mollissima), also called St. Cuthbert's duck or Cuddy's duck, is a large (50–71 cm (20–28 in) in body length) sea-duck that is distributed over the northern coasts of Europe, North America and eastern Siberia. It breeds in Arctic and some northern temperate regions, but winters somewhat farther south in temperate zones, when it can form large flocks on coastal waters. It can fly at speeds up to 113 km/h (70 mph).
Common Eider, King Eider. Continuing the trend while growing the depth and expanse, Entrance to the Sky, Entrance to the Land swirls and resounds, echoing almost like the call of the eider duck in the thick mists of the Icelandic coasts. Side two begins with Pulsing Blood and Spit : a groaning, effulgent call to the darkness. Vocals are present, watery, and limbic, spoken more than sung, lilting slightly in the entwining atmospheres. Unfortunately, they are also quite indecipherable though I can only assume they are possessed by the words included in the cassette liner jacket

Common Eider Somateria mollissima. Though most people probably have only heard of eiders in relation to eiderdown pillows, the Common Eider is a bird well worth getting to know for more than its warm, insulating feathers. King Eider are more widespread than either Steller’s Eider or Spectacled Eider but not as common as, well, Common Eider. They breed across the tundra in Asia, Europe, and North America and winter in similar areas to Common Eider (coastal rocky shorelines), but Common Eider is more likely further south. So, if one is going to see any eider one is going to see Common Eider, which only makes sense
The common eider is the southernmost breeding eider, with a nesting range extending from Sitka in Southeast Alaska along the entire coast into Arctic Canada. Small colonies are found in the Kodiak harbor and along Homer Spit. Common eiders nest near driftwood or clumps of grass on barrier islands, sandy beaches, and on islands in tundra ponds, often in association with gull colonies. King eiders have a circumpolar distribution with about 10,000 breeding in Alaska. The center of breeding abundance in Alaska is along the eastern half of the Beaufort Sea coast, but king eiders are much more abundant in the Canadian Arctic islands. Nearly one-half million king eiders migrate through the Beaufort Sea, arriving on breeding areas as early as April 3 at Point Barrow, but most birds do not arrive until May.
