Fire-Toolz ~ Eternal Home

While listening to Fire-Toolz, it is very often – almost every few seconds, in fact – that I find myself asking: how’d she manage to do it? How is it that these 56k modem-like noises fit perfectly with a Chrono

*Press A* ~ Hundred Days

Tumult Kollektiv’s latest soundtrack proves just how much the group is willing to grow and expand in terms of artistic vision. Where 2019’s Pine was a tight, lush impressionist landscape, Hundred Days is relaxed, indulgent in melodies straight out of
