Review


Additional info
Available as an impeccably mastered one-sided 7" vinyl record, pressed on white vinyl and contained in packaging with exhaustive information detailing the natural phenomenon depicted on the cover, in a hand-stamped and numbered edition of 500 copies.

Described as "lush melodic, and beautifully improvised guitar experiments that are sonically and spiritually aligned with originators of such ambiance such as Manuel Gottsching, Tangerine Dream, or Popol Vuh, and contemporary practitioners such as Burning Star Core, Oneohtrix Point Never, or Emeralds."
