Lovecraft’s The Picture in the House, Cadabra aims, and achieves, to ensure that every record that comes from their label is an experience that will leaves listeners entranced and shaken to their core.
Today, we’re excited to continue our coverage of the label by bring you an exclusive sample from their soon-to-be-released take on Thomas Ligotti’s The Bungalow House, which is narrated by Jon Padgett and features original music by Chris Bozzone with art by Jason Barnett.
