20.00EUR • approx. 29USD [ temp. out of stock ] : [ pre-order ]

23.00EUR • approx. 33.4USD [ temp. out of stock ] : [ pre-order ]
While travelling to Wyoming, Liz Harris found herself drawn towards the pairing of skeletal piano phrasing with spare, rich bursts of vocal harmony. A series of stark songs emerged, minimal and vulnerable, woven with emotive silences.

Stylistic touchstones might be Thomas Köner, Angelo Badalamenti and Stars of the Lid (to a degree), but Scott Morgan takes things to shadowier, yet picturesque places - fitting, considering he is based in the quite lovely Pacific Northwest.

"Konoyo" 2x 12" LP 2018, Kranky
26.00EUR • approx. 37.7USD [ new ] : [ add to cart ]
Keening strings are stretched into surreal, pixelated mirages; woodwinds warble and dissipate as fractal whispers of spatial haze; sparse gestures of percussion are chopped, isolated, and eroded, like disembodied signals from the afterlife.

Tim Hecker (U.S.A.)
"Anoyo" 12" LP 2019, Kranky
20.00EUR • approx. 29USD [ new ] : [ add to cart ]
"Anoyo" draws from the same sessions which led to the 2018 work "Konoyo" but rendered starker, solemn, and stripped back, with more of a naturalist tint. This is boldly barren music, skeletal and sculptural, shaped from wood, wind, strings, and mist.

A1. That World
A2. Is But A Simulated Blur
A3. Step Away From Konoyo
B1. Into The Void
B2. Not Alone
B3. You Never Were
