Order Abandoned Cities from Bleep here.
The Serpent (In Quicksilver) was originally issued in 1981 on Harold’s own label, Cantil. Within are short but incisive piano meditations, carefully layered electronic washes and bursts of pedal steel guitar, conjuring mental images of Harold’s desert upbringing. This is the real Cosmic Americana.

Abandoned Cities was originally issued in 1984 on Harold’s own label, Cantil. Perhaps the darkest entry in his voluminous back catalogue with a quasi-industrial element to the sonic palette. Two 20-minute plus tracks that evoke a post-apocalyptic soundworld with heavy synth drone and suspended single piano notes.
