The backstory of this meeting-of-melted-minds runs as follows: rewind to the eden of 2006, when Heavy Winged were a bustling Brooklyn-centered free-psych unit yet to dissipate into bi-coastal dormancy; meanwhile, Eva Saelens aka Inca Ore was touring the northeast in support of her recent The Birds In The Bushes LP; simultaneously, Eternal Tapestry shredder Nick Bindeman happens to be visiting the 5 boroughs. Heavy Winged invite Nick and Eva to commune jam at a Northsix gig for the hell of it. They do. The set is a psychotropic cyclone of ragged electricity and possessed banshee frenzy, stomping up and down over several crumbling mountains of riff-wreckage. Miraculously, someone thinks to record the performance. Jed Bindeman mails us a copy. Fast forward to fall 2008: Heavy Winged record a new 20-minute opus (“Into The Fog”) and send it to Eva, who overdubs some prime hypno-bliss keyboards. Ergo, Ring Mining. Black vinyl LPs mastered by James Plotkin and housed in jackets with collaged mountains artwork by Eva Saelens, plus a photocopied insert.
