Coma Cinema - Posthumous Release

South Carolina’s Mat Cothran has just released, via Fork and Spoon Records and Orchid Tapes, the last album, Posthumous Release, under his bleak bedroom pop moniker Coma Cinema; he now records as Elvis Depressedly. Working within a higher fidelity on these songs but still treading the same desolate lyrical landscapes as on his previous releases, the record’s barren emotional narratives still have a raw edge that slides under your skin before you realize what’s happening.

The latest song, “Virgin Veins,” to be released from the album is a stripped down, self-deprecating look at love and the damage that we inflict on each other. And don’t expect some happy resolution either, as Cothran sings, “The heart is a monument/To a childhood of abuse.” But if you’ve been following his output over the past few years, you know that this kind of pitch black intimacy has been the thematic backbone of his music as Coma Cinema. Check out “Virgin Veins” from the band’s swansong below.
