Paskine ~ The Shapes of Collapses

Paskine has recorded a ferocious, unstoppable event. Things are falling apart – collapsing – on a massive scale, the universe itself vomiting out intergalactic dust. Dead stars litter a pale sky emitting only a cold, crushed radiance. This isn’t just the

CEEYS ~ Concrete Fields

Concrete Fields goes back in time, more specifically returning to the youth of brothers Sebastian and Daniel Selke (CEEYS). The brothers have produced a record of both genesis and revelation, of origin and continuation. Their music was born here, under hulking, towering skeletons
