    Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof Soundtrack

    Daredevil, cult-film hero-directors
    Quentin Tarantino (Reservoir Dogs, Pulp
    Fiction, Kill Bill) and Robert Rodriguez
    (Sin City, From Dusk Till Dawn, Desperado)
    have teamed up for Grindhouse, their
    double-feature homage to the '60s, '70s
    and '80s B-movie exploitation genres.
    Reviving original tracks from those
    decades and more, the soundtrack album
    for Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof
    reaches back with the same hip, offbeat
    attitude that has helped make Tarantino
    and Rodriguez two of the most admired
    auteurs of the MTV generation.

    The Dusk Line EP

    This EP is comprised of four songs recorded during the sessions of their debut 59.59 in 2007. They stripped their sound down to just layered grand piano and voice, featuring contributions by only two members of the group. It's an exercise in restraint, although no less impactful. Sian Alice Group have become known for their sweeping, orchestrated aesthetic, but The Dusk Line distills their sound to its core.

    The Dusk In Us (Pre-Order)

    Five years since their last release, Converge return with The Dusk In Us: a brutal but beautiful album that shows the band's artistic evolution while still capturing their classic sound.


    The ninth full-length from the Boston-based heavy-music innovators-vocalist Jacob Bannon, guitarist Kurt Ballou, bassist Nate Newton, and drummer Ben Koller-The Dusk In Us proves to be both dark and hopeful, abrasive and melodic, devastating and powerfully cathartic.


    In recording The Dusk In Us, Converge once again worked in Ballou's renowned Godcity Studios in Salem, Massachusetts. Produced by the band and mixed by Ballou, the album matches its raw energy with a subculture-crossing inventiveness that's earned Converge longtime reverence within the punk, metal, and hardcore scenes.


    One of Converge's most dynamic and avant-garde albums to date, The Dusk In Us unfolds with an uncompromising honesty born from "writing about experiences in my life and working through the complexities of those things through song," as Bannon explains. On the album-opening "A Single Tear," pummeling drums and caustic riffs form the backdrop to strikingly vulnerable lyrics like "When I held you for the first time/I knew I had to survive." ("'A Single Tear' is about becoming a parent, and the perspective and strength it can give," Bannon notes.) With its abrasive guitar work and menacing undertones, "Under Duress" brings a tortured howl to lyrics channeling what Bannon describes as "my emotional reaction to the complex world in which we live." A frenzied blast of pure fury, "I Can Tell You About Pain" offers what NPR recently hailed as "hardcore-fueled extreme music that simultaneously elevates and destroys." And on the seven-minute-plus title track to The Dusk in Us, Converge deliver a slow-building, quietly haunting epic of ethereal beauty.


    Converge formed in Massachusetts in 1990, then made their debut with 1994's Halo in a Haystack. Soon regarded as pioneers within the aggressive music arena, the band had a major breakthrough with their landmark album Jane Doe-a 2001 release praised as "iconic" by the A.V. Club (who also noted that Jane Doe "reaches canonical status with every re-listen").


    The Dusk In Us arrives as the follow-up to 2012's All We Love We Leave Behind, an album that Consequence Of Sound called "as skull-cleaving as it is beautiful" and that made its way onto Pitchfork's Best New Music list. While The Dusk In Us finds Converge defying boundaries and pushing into new sonic terrain, it's also a natural progression for a band that's long thrived on making music that both challenges and connects. "Our only goal is to create something that moves us and resonates with us emotionally," says Bannon. "For us, it's simply a new album about new chapters in our lives. We are a very 'human' band-always have been-and our songs are all rooted in our real-life experiences. The Dusk In Us is that new chapter, just as previous records were before that."

    Late Night Endless

    Heavyweight, futurist dub from a cross-generational pairing of sound systems masters. The culmination of two years in the studio developing, re-dubbing and deconstructing tracks. Evocative of a long and strange journey from dusk til dawn, it finds the highest common factor between the two producer's techniques. Pinch's electronic pulse meeting Sherwood's analogue FX units head on.

    Errant Forms

    Includes a Copy of the CD in Jacket as Well as a Pair of 3D Glasses to View the Cover.


    In February of 2009 Ladyfinger released their sophomore effort Dusk. The album bridged three decades of influence, mixing early 70's classic rock with punk and hardcore of the late 80's and early 90's. This unique fusion gained them praise (Pitchfork called Dusk's lead single 'Little Things' "all power and momentum and baldface 70's classic-rock glory") and a pack of new fans.


    After a brief time away and a lineup change, Ladyfinger (ne) began playing shows on and off in early 2010. The shows went well and by the summer of 2011 the band was revisiting unfinished songs from the Dusk sessions and writing new tracks. In May of 2012 the band found itself at ARC studios in Omaha once again recording with their longtime producer Matt Bayles (Mastodon, Minus the Bear, Isis).


    Upon listening to the ten songs found on Errant Forms it's clear that the music was indeed there. Their signature mix of classic rock bombast and punk grit is back on display here in standout tracks "Galactic" and "Poison For Hire", while "Birds" paints an ominous vision of atonement over subtle guitars that slowly build until absolution is realized with the pounding drums and organ that emerge at the song's climax. Lead single "Dark Horse" is an ode to escapism that stands out for being as solemn as it is anthemic. Errant Forms adds a new level of musical nuance and lyrical breadth to Ladyfinger's already dynamic sound.

    Night

    Without apology, Holly Cole is a self-declared night owl, perfectly at home in the time between dusk and dawn, a dear friend of the wee small hours. It's a fact that now finds firm and poetic expression in the title and content of her eagerly awaited new album - Night. As usual when it comes to the iconic Canadian songstress, it's an album that features a stylistically diverse and emotionally stirring collection of songs. It stands as a love letter to the night and its magic powers, a celebration of the hours where daylight's chatter has disappeared and turned into peaceful moments of creative possibility, providing a chance to see the world with different eyes and to listen with different ears. An invitation to intimacy.

    Ancestral Star

    Evan Caminiti (guitars, vocals) and Jon Porras (guitars, vocals, drums, harmonium) met in San Francisco in 2006 and immediately started playing music together. Over the next four years, the two gradually sculpted a vast collection of hazy desert sky meditations; ominous, barren expanses of music for desert walks at dusk and dark, pastoral passages embellished with psychedelic and atmospheric wash. A mixture between devotional ragas and dusty stomp with atmosphere and production that references shoegaze and black metal influences.


    Ancestral Star, their third LP, marks the evolution of the Barn Owl sound into a territory where it has become wholly its own, transcending the sum of its influences and taking on a life of its own. At the same time, it is a more realized extension of that sound. Caminiti and Porras paid close attention to the composition of each track and its flow within the album as a whole. Engaging throughout, every moment contributes to an overall feeling of mysterious desert expanse and a sonic narrative that unfurls like a cinematic metaphysical western.

    Exhibitionists

    In the summer of 2010, Superhumanoids was birthed under the hazy air and bright blue skies of Los Angeles. A fascination for electronic sounds, instruments, pedals, and more, aesthetically united Max,Sarah, and Cameron. Like a petri dish growing each day, the band spent their time together intertwining and experimenting with their R&B upbringings and love for pop music.


    Exhibitionists is the soundtrack to the last moments of dusk in LA. With swooning guitars, glimmering air, soaring melodies, the setting sun, and melting keyboards, something about the whole thing makes
    your breath stop short. With each synth and guitar sound being completely made from scratch, the record brings a homegrown feel that encapsulates the thumps of the beating heart and lulls of swaying palm
    fronds from LA. Despite being wrapped in an electronic blanket, the trio unravels each songs core to take the listener on a journey that
    highlights the living R&B undertones and driving groove that brings to light the soul of the record. What is found in the sticky air of the city of angels is found here in Exhibitionists, to ease between the spaces of your body, make you dance, and bring you home.

    Alvvays


    180-Gram Electric Blue Vinyl


    "'Adult Diversion' is a whimsical dream jam and brings "feel-good" to
    a staggering high." - Consequence of Sound


    "...a complete collision of everything we already love: singalong
    lyrics, a guitar-driven backbone, and a sun-drenched vibe..."
    -Nylon


    "Alvvays make wistful, jangly, Brit-tinged indiepop."
    -Brooklyn Vegan


    "...somewhere between the sun-drenched shores of California and
    the preppy Scottish countryside."
    -Pitchfork


    Alvvays are two women, three men, a crate of C-86 tapes and a
    love of jingle-jangle. Molly Rankin and Kerri MacLellan grew up
    as next-door neighbours in Cape Breton, lifting fiddles and folk-songs. Heartbreaks of different shades soon entered their lives, as
    did the music of Teenage Fanclub and Belle & Sebastian. Similar
    noisy melancholy drifted over to Prince Edward Island, finding
    Alec O'Hanley, Brian Murphy and Philip MacIsaac.


    Convening in Toronto, the group have been making music since
    since dusk or maybe dawn, when stars were appearing or fading
    off. As a result, their debut self-titled album is both sun-splashed
    and twilit -- nine songs concealing drunkenness, defeat and death
    in tungsten-tinted pop that glitters like sea glass.


    With needlepoint melody and verse, Rankin and O'Hanley's songs
    were recorded at Chad VanGaalen's Yoko Eno studio and mixed
    by Graham Walsh (Holy Fuck) and John Agnello (Sonic Youth,
    Dinosaur Jr., kurt Vile). The resultant album is loud and clear and
    sure. Flood your ears.

    Monochrome (Pre-Order)

    ANATHEMA'S PIONEERING SONGWRITER DANIEL CAVANAGH RELEASES DEBUT SOLO ALBUM

    Riding the waves of his success with Anathema's latest album 'The Optimist', which includes a worldwide headline tour, multiple summer music festivals and an Album of the Year nomination for the 2017 Progressive Music Awards, Daniel Cavanagh releases his debut solo album, Monochrome.

    Inspired by internal feelings of love and loss, 'Monochrome' is a deeply reflective and personal offering. Cavanagh elaborates: The album has a late night, candlelit feeling, evoking the light of dusk as the summer sun sinks below the horizon, setting the scene for thoughts and meditations that many people will relate to.

    A lot of this material could easily have made it on to the last Anathema album or any future album; that's how highly the band rate it. There are several highlights: The Exorcist and The Silent Flight of the Raven Winged Hours are among some of my best works of the last decade. Taking them from the band was not an easy decision but I am glad; they're so personal as to not need more input.

    Monochrome features Anneke Van Giersbergen - ex-vocalist for The Gathering, who has since sung with Devin Townsend, Árstíðir, Anathema and Arjen Lucassen - and the exceptionally talented Anna Phoebe provides violin on three of the album tracks. Recorded at Grammy Award-winning Parr Street Studios, engineered by Andrea Wright, mastered by Anathema's Daniel Cardoso, and with artwork by illustrator Danny Branscombe, this album is stacked to be a special addition to the Kscope family.

    Territory (On Sale)

    Territory is the follow up to the Charlottetown band's Polaris Prize nominated and internationally acclaimed sophomore album, Little Jabs. Once again produced by Joel Plaskett, Territory builds on the promise of Little Jabs as the band continues to write and record sunny pop gems for the heart and head. The album also finds Two Hours Traffic discovering the shadows at the side of the road. Right from the get go this becomes apparent as the gold into lead alchemy of the rousing opener Noisemaker kicks in and by the time the title track tells its tale of disillusionment and betrayal you know you are settling in for a drive to the darker side. Indeed, songs such as Weightless One, Drop Alcohol, Wicked Side, and Lost Boys all explore the approaching dusk but just like the more hopeful tracks on the album (Happiness Burns, Sing A Little Hymn) they all lock into the close your eyes, sing along choruses and instantly memorable lyrics that have put Two Hours Traffic on the melodic map.



    Initially conceived as a two-piece, lead singer Liam Corcoran and guitarist Alec O'Hanley recruited bassist Andrew MacDonald and drummer Derek Ellis while attending university in their hometown of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. After releasing their April Storm EP in 2003 a friendship was struck up with Halifax hero Joel Plaskett who offered to produce the band's first proper album. They've been working together ever since. While their eponymous debut and their follow up Isolator EP were received warmly by critics, it wasn't until 2007's breakthrough Little Jabs that the world really took notice. Appearing on dozens of year-end best of lists, Little Jabs also garnered an ECMA for Best Pop Recording and was a finalist for the coveted Polaris Music Prize.

    IV: One With The Storm

    Finland's GHOST BRIGADE haunts the spaces between worlds. Their heavy, mournful music is the sound of dusk; mining the distinctive Finnish sound of sorrow and the vast, heavy drone of the post-metal cosmos. Plaintive vocals sing songs of loss, and cloak both a sonic and emotional weight that resonates deeply. 'IV: One with the Storm' is a dark, emotional, and truly moving album of the heaviest modern metal.

    Record Store Day Split

    To celebrate Record Store Day 2009, Cursive and Ladyfinger (ne) have paired up for a limited edition split 10 picture disc featuring one album track and one previously unreleased track from each band.Since Cursive burst onto the music scene with their 1997 debut album, the band has consistently and continually churned out heady albums heralded by critics and fans alike. Wrestling with life's miseries and mysteries, Mama, I'm Swollen is an album brimming with the universal, questioning the human condition, social morality, and the Peter Pan Syndrome of grown men.Dusk is Ladyfinger (ne) at the peak of their powers, with one foot in the sounds of early 70's classic rock and another in the punk and hardcore scenes of the late 80's and early 90's.

    Neon Fiction

    Dusk. Mist. Cemeteries. City skylines. Autumn. FEELINGS. Fleeting moments. These are some of the things that come to mind when we think of Chris McCaughan's band, Sundowner. In addition to his work as the guitarist and singer in The Lawrence Arms, over the last seven years Chris has amassed an impressive body of work and played all over the world as Sundowner.


    Fat will release his third studio album, Neon Fiction. This time around, Chris is once again joined by multi-instrumentalist and fellow Lawrence Arm, Neil Hennessy. The two have boldly expanded their horizons to experiment with full band instrumentations, dynamic arrangements, and stylistic departures from previous records. Together, Chris and Neil entered Atlas Studios (Alkaline Trio, The Menzingers, Masked Intruder) and crafted ten songs that feature indelible new melodies and Chris' most personal and confident lyrics.

    Shadow of the Sun


    Comes With 7 Featuring Lead Single "Animal" & Vinyl-Exclusive B-Side "Fadeaway"


    Moon Duo began work on their latest album during a period in which they
    faced a curious new reality. Freed from deadlines and expectations, and suddenly
    off the road for a stretch, Ripley Johnson and Sanae Yamada found themselves
    each experiencing strange shifts in their perceptions of reality. Like the beginning
    of an acid trip, or the edge of dusk, when shadows converge mysteriously with
    light, life began to slip into a surreal dream, and then back, suddenly, without
    warning. Unstable in these strange shadows and light, the band turned to music
    to tether themselves to a kind of working sanity.


    Shadow of the Sun is the result of a few months of wrangling with this new unsettling
    way of being. Working both in a dark basement in Portland, and above
    ground in sunny San Francisco, these new sounds and songs veered dramatically
    from groove to groove, revealing sonic textures the duo had not previously
    explored. The song "Night Beat," with its woozy dance rhythm, is an attempt at
    finding joy and acceptance on this new, shifting ground, while "Wilding" plays
    off the familiar Moon Duo sound, taking refuge in a repetitive, grounding
    riff-scape. Elsewhere the band gives itself entirely up to the trip, cruising along
    on the fuzzed rhythms of "Slow Down Low" and "Free the Skull," crashing into
    the clenched-teeth herky-jerk of "Zero," and floating down, down, down, on the
    narcotic mist of "In a Cloud."


    To further coat the album in a fog of stoned confusion, the duo decamped to
    Berlin to mix with Finnish beat-meister Jonas Verwijnen of Kaiku Studios. There
    they managed to entirely reverse the clarity of the album, increasing the overall
    focus, and creating an unorthodox argument for sanity through extreme negation
    of proper technique and conventionality.


    The result, at the end of the trip, is the album Shadow of the Sun.

    The Past We Leave Behind

    Mike Simonetti has decided to split from Italians Do It Better (Chromatics, Glass Candy) to focus on his new project, Pale Blue, as well as his new venture: the freshly minted label 2MR (Two Mikes Records). A collaboration between Simonetti and Captured Tracks, 2MR is an opportunity for Simonetti to start from a blank slate and release music he believes in. The first release on 2MR will be The Past We Leave Behind, the debut album from Pale Blue. During the writing process of Capricorn Rising, Simonetti was asked to remix tracks from the West Coast twosome Silver Hands. Immediately taken by the incredible range of lead-vocalist Elizabeth Wight, he reached out to collaborate. The result of the bi-coastal email exchange would eventually become Pale Blue. Pale Blue, referencing the term "Pale Blue Dot" , coined by Carl Sagan to refer to a photograph of planet Earth taken by the Voyager 1 space probe in 1990, was originally conceived around the time that Hurricane Sandy hit New York and came to completion with Simonetti's severance from Italians. Thus, many of the tracks that make up The Past grapple with themes of loss and new beginnings. The Past encompasses a myriad of sonic elements, ranging from rhythmic, melodic techno to atmospheric ambient productions, while also incorporating Simonetti's varied background in noise, drone, and even experimental dream pop. Above it all though, Wight's vocals remain the focal point, saturating the record with a lush melodic warmth that's so often missing in the electronic world. Musically, Pale Blue is a response to modern dance music and its constant fluctuations. It intentionally bears no obvious singles, nor club hits. While Simonetti, Wight and Jana Hunter (vocals on "Dusk in Parts") remain at its core, Pale Blue's philosophy is to keep everything open to collaboration. It does not aim to pigeonhole itself into a genre or any new vistas in music, but instead to a unifying sound produced collectively and harmoniously.

    Anxiety's Kiss

    Founded by Louisville musician Ryan Patterson and including Kayhan Vaziri and Carter Wilson, power trio Coliseum have grown to become one of today's quintessential contemporary punk bands. Successfully melding progressive musicianship, hardcore fervor, and vital social awareness into one constantly evolving artistic vision.


    Over the last decade Coliseum have released music on a host of labels including; Temporary Residence, Relapse, Level Plane, Auxiliary (Ryan's own label), and Deathwish.


    "Anxiety's Kiss" is the new album from Coliseum, recorded at The Magpie Cage by producer/engineer J. Robbins (Jawbox, Burning Airlines). "Anxiety's Kiss" is a hook-laden maturation of the Coliseum sound. Nods to their early D-Beat leanings are there, but it is their willingness to embrace Post-Punk melody and explore the space between notes that make "Anxiety's Kiss" so alluring. Confidently growing within the punk world, without ever leaving it behind.


    "We Are The Water" kicks things off with a synth-driven stomp while lyrically serving as a poignant social awakening and call for human empathy. Amidst a tangle and twang of melody, "Course Correction" and "Wrong/Goodbye" then emerge to tackle the ripe subjects of class division and police brutality. "Drums & Amplifiers" picks up pace, taking on those who reflect on their punk past rather than absorb the spirit that still charges the air around us. It's not all social and subcultural commentary though. The dizzying "Dark Light Of Seduction" and sultry "Sharp Fangs, Pale Flesh" (where J. Robbins guests performing the BulBul Tarang) are darkly provocative narratives about the power of lust and love. In soul and tone, they both interject an emotional underbelly to it all. Robbins also adds bass on "Comedown", an industrial-tinged romp led by Vaziri's baritone guitar and Wilson's booming toms. Coincidentally, it is also the first Coliseum song ever recorded to not feature Patterson on guitar. "Sunlight in a Snowstorm" is the band at their most melodic, with a snow-covered New York City as its lyrical backdrop. The high beam lit, cinematic noir of "Driver at Dusk" and infectious, fuzzed-out "Escape Yr Skull" lastly descend to close out the album. A flawless, yin and yang pairing that is Coliseum at the peak of their experimental and anthemic powers.

    Duskland

    "He dwells in the same darkness as Cass McCombs, punctuating the cobwebbed stillness with lowing organ and severe, almost pagan imagery. The Crimson moon, the city of refuge: Thesewould be hapless signi ers in
    another singer's mouth. Cale's drawl molds them back into tremendous fra gments, oating in a skyline somewhere just beyond the dusk. All of Duskland possesses that same fantastic self-assurance." -Stereogum


    Zachary Cale has been releasing records under his own name for just shy of a decade. Duskland,
    the title of his latest record, is a work of craftsmanship full of elegant lyricism and mysterious
    imagery; a collection of songs that look directly into the face of darkness yet drive beyond it,
    forging new paths.


    Allegorical in nature, Cale's songs move away from the inward reveries of his last album, Blue Rider,
    and divide outward into the voices of others. The album projects images of wide-open spaces and
    landscapes constructed from half remembered dreams. There isn't always a clear resolution, characters
    remain in a state of twilight, wandering from place to place in search of an undefined illumination. The
    lyric: So many lifetimes I lived in one / I've got to bury them now / No surprises this time around /
    Not beneath this crown, taken from I Left The Old Cell, aptly captures the human complexities found
    throughout the songs.


    Taking cues from artists like Oh Mercy/Time Out of Mind era Dylan and Nick Cave's work with the
    Bad Seeds, Duskland evokes a restless spirit, one that is informed by American myths and tall tales.
    There's a Western flair to many of the album's songs with nods to soundtrack composers such as
    Morricone and the dream-laden noir of Badalamenti. Many of the album's highlights maintain a
    ceremonial grace. Sundowner opens the album with a lush organ progression played over a
    plaintive march. As the tension builds, Cale muses Branded as a fugitive / Dressed in the clothes
    of an innocent / Sirens ricochet / From bloodless lips I hear them call my name. From there the
    album moves forward like one long processional; Cale leads his band through up-tempo folk rock
    and charming country waltzes to minor key dirges and atmospheric instrumentals until ending with a
    horn section dragging over a funeral beat in the long form ballad Low Light Serenade.

    New Project Led By Montreal Cellist Rebecca Foon

    (ESMERINE, SILVER MT ZION, SET FIRE TO FLAMES)

    • Features Jamie Thompson (UNICORNS) and Guest Players from LITTLE SCREAM, PATRICK WATSON BAND
    and BELL ORCHESTRE

    • Recorded and Mixed by Grammy-Winning Engineer
    Mark Lawson (ARCADE FIRE)


    Saltland is the new project led by Montreal-based cellist Rebecca Foon, best
    known as a founding member of contemporary chamber group Esmerine and a former
    member of Thee Silver Mt. Zion and Set Fire To Flames. Foon began composing solo
    work in 2010, featuring multi-layered cello and hushed vocals at the intersection of
    drone, no-wave, improv, dream-pop and minimalism. Joined by Jamie Thompson
    (Unicorns, Esmerine) on miniature percussion, programming and signal processing,
    Foon's live performances in Montreal and abroad over the past two years have seen
    her sound progress towards gently rhythmic and electronic territory as well. She has
    transfixed audiences with this new music while sharing the stage with Mary Margaret
    O'Hara, Julia Kent, Nat Baldwin and Sam Amidon, among others. As her largely homerecorded debut album began taking shape throughout 2011, with numerous guests
    contributing to various pieces, Foon adopted the Saltland moniker for this work.


    I Thought It Was Us But It Was All Of Us is a beautifully restrained debut
    album that telescopes the directness and economy of Foon's compositional and vocal
    styles into lush, twilight atmospheres aglow with luminescent tendrils and flickering
    particles. Foon sings of childhood innocence lost, of tender utopic reveries and
    downcast dystopic horizons, and the search for soft, stoic strength in a darkening,
    devolving world. Foon's voice is discreet but defined, drifting on buoyant currents of
    sound sourced from her plucked and bowed cello lines, in most cases propelled by
    Thompson's bespoke percussion and understated programming/processing, with
    touches of guitar, bass, horns, woodwinds, strings and backing vocals added by a cast
    of supporting players. The record unfurls like a gauzy flag in a restless breeze at dusk:
    a delicate, resolute sentinel set against the fading light.


    The album's ambience also owes much to the work of Mark Lawson, the awardwinning engineer (Arcade Fire) who collaborated closely with Foon to record and mix
    these songs at Six Saint V, her apartment studio in Montreal. Lawson, along with
    friend and percussionist Thompson, helped to forge a balance between lo-fi intimacy
    and shimmering breadth with these recordings, remaining faithful to the all-anologue
    instrumentation of the source material while judiciously deploying signal processing
    strategies to subtly refract, saturate and expand the sonic landscape. With
    contributions from Laurel Sprengelmeyer and Jess Robertson (Little Scream), Mishka
    Stein (Patrick Watson), Colin Stetson (Bon Iver), Sarah Neufeld and Richard Reed Parry
    (Arcade Fire) among others, Saltland offers up an unassumingly immersive debut
    album of searching songs that blend several core influences into a distinctively
    naturalistic sound. Saltland stakes out an unaffected, meditative, clear-eyed and
    earnest space where minimalism, dream-pop, drone, shoegaze, confessional folk,
    modern chamber and ambient/electronic coexist and coalesce.

    Terrestrials (Awaiting Repress)


    Thick Stock Cardboard Stoughton Style Tip On Jacket


    180 Gram Vinyl


    Limited To 3,000


    Four figures stand atop a summit, staring east out over a vast, frostbitten wasteland, the black sun dwindling in the west, casting their shadows across the plain. They await another clan, legendary for their slow approach. Eyes on the horizon, searching, patiently, for some signal of the arrival, some plume of smoke that would announce that the time had come. At last, at the edge of the plane, they note a black banner, and soon two hooded figures appear in the dusk. A horn sounds, and drumbeats echo through the valley.


    It's only the threshold of the distant horizon that limits the scope of Terrestrials, but like much of Earth, its landscape is arid, only disclosing its secrets upon active contemplation of its component dust. From the opening strains, hidden at the foot of a vertiginous crescendo from zero decibels, the album recalls a technique of Andrei Tarkovsky's, later developed in the films of BÉla Tarr. The eight-and-a-half-minute opening shot in Tarr's epic Sátántangó laterally tracks cattle carefully plodding through a dilapidated commune in search of food from muddy pasture. As the audience investigates the frame for clues to Tarr's purpose, he slowly reveals to them a symbolic vision of the film as a whole, inviting contemplation of the rich surfaces of the decayed buildings and the labyrinthine entrapment of the commune's inhabitant kine, some playing at leadership and some dragging their feet, cow and human alike awaiting deliverance by a dark messiah. Terrestrials proceeds in a remarkably similar fashion. As each track unfurls, its glacial pace arrests the listener's search for novelty, forcing attention to the profundities of the mix and the texture that the interlaced sounds create; and yet it also deepens the desire for what each step forward promises, the crisis that the procession patiently unveils.


    Terrestrials features more complex instrumentation than most of the works of either party. Sunn O)))'s deep bass and endlessly sustained guitar feature heavily on each track of Terrestrials, but so do Ulver's electronics and a myriad of additions, including trumpets, didgeridoo, and strings. Although the tracks apparently began as a set of improvisations recorded at Ulver's Oslo studio, the vast scope of the release clearly evolved out of the various mixing and arrangement sessions helmed by Ulver's Kristoffer Rygg and Sunn O)))'s Stephen O'Malley between 2008 and 2012. Here they achieved a synthesis that stylistically transcends the mere combination of the two groups and their traditional pathways, with Ulver sealing up the cracks of Sunn O)))'s immense backdrop and heightening the atmosphere with tense strings, sculpted textures, and insistent rhythm. It's this attention to the subtleties that renders Terrestrials monolithic; they ensure that each tick of the clock yields an array of sonic qualities, each progressing slowly in themselves but together moving the whole mass of sound forth at a constant click.


    From the trumpets on "Let There Be Light" to the drum-like pound of the bass and didgeridoo in "Western Horn," Terrestrials relentlessly heralds its own arrival, an endless parade slouching towards Bethlehem. By the time Rygg's vocals enter at the middle of "Eternal Return," the crawling pace of the album has ensured their sublimity. Taken on its own, this short section would scarcely justify a song unto itself; it emerges out of the sudden but carefully orchestrated resolution of the murky depths of the track's recesses, manifesting as a piercing clarity and a distillation of the album's theme of annunciation. Its lyrics, rich in spite of their brevity, conceal a messianic yearning in the fallow desert, a hope for deliverance from the stasis of the Egyptian yoke and the confusion of exile, and a dark prophecy of a "liminal animal" with "golden nature" of the sinful calf. Rygg urges us to "listen silent."


    Gongs or guitars ring out. This final stage of Terrestrials heralds a return of an immense mystery. What approaches, its lumbering gait constantly pressing onward, can't divulge its nature until it finally arrives. The quintessential figure of doom is an immense behemoth, a force of nature whose sublime shadow conceals it from view even as its thundering steps reveal its impending advent. But here we lie in wait. Terrestrials delivers on its persistent promise by offering another transcendental promise of a future culmination. But the restraint they exert in their advance to the beautiful oasis at the center of "Eternal Return" suggests that, here, Sunn O))) and Ulver are more interested in the process as it happens through time, tracking the march of the sun across the heavens, marking each moment as it slips back into eternity.
