Originally released on CD and Digital formats only, Copia was eventually available on vinyl exclusively as part of the Life Through Bombardment Vol. 1 box set. With that set long out of print, we are delighted to finally reissue this stunning album on vinyl in a limited edition of 2,000 copies. Remastered for vinyl by Francesco Donadello at Calyx Mastering, this 2xLP set is packaged in a full-color wide-spine jacket with dual heavyweight full-color inner sleeves, and pressed onto audiophile-quality 100% virgin vinyl.
Following a string of increasingly remarkable albums, Eluvium's Matthew Cooper set out to broaden his instrumental palette, while maintaining the uncanny emotional resonance that has become his trademark. The result is Copia, an hour-long epic that applies Eluvium's heartache-inducing ether to a symphony of strings, brass, keyboards and piano. Noticeably absent but hardly missed are the washes of guitars that color most of Eluvium's previous material. The deliberate exclusion of traditional rock instrumentation serves as sufficient proof that the instrument is not Eluvium's driving force. At best it is a catalyst, a vehicle to that netherworld in the back of your head, where your life starts to uncontrollably reevaluate itself.
