About It'll End In Tears (Discontinued) by This Mortal Coil:
Born in an effort to pay tribute to influential artists and his own desire for self-expression, 4AD owner Ivo Watts-Russell formed the band This Mortal Coil.
The band helped pioneer the more modern 4AD sound of atmospheric, goth-based, electronic popmusic and in the case of This Mortal Coil, applies that sound to favorite folk and rock songs alongside a few instrumental originals.
On the first album, 1984's It'll End In Tears, as would be the This Mortal Coil tradition, Ivo invites manyfriends along for the ride, including label mainstays The Cocteau Twins and Dead Can Dance, combining their unique voices and songwriting talents. Deep reverb washes the guitars as soaring voices drift on beds of string instruments and electronics producing beautiful covers of songs by Tim Buckley, Big Star and Alex Chilton and crafting a truly memorable and influential album in it's own right.
This release has been immaculately re-issued under the watchful eye of band and 4AD founder IvoWatts-Russel. All of the music has been re-mastered from the original master tapes and all of the art is from the original assets by Watts-Russel and his team. The vinyl has been painstakingly pressed o nhigh quality, 180g vinyl by Furnace MFG/Record Industry in Holland. You've never heard It'll End in Tears until you've heard this gem.
