Aurora Borealis: New Releases From SCYTHLING, PYRAMIDS WITH WRAITHS & THISQUIETARMY
SCYTHLING is the project of Aidan Baker (Nadja, Whisper Room, Infinite Light Ltd.) & Josh Rothenberger (Bloody Panda) recorded live-in-studio in Brooklyn, NY in February 2008. The resultant material was subsequently re-worked and -shaped into the three tracks featured on ‘Smokefall’, including independent contributions from various guest musicians.
The resultant album combines elements of both Baker’s and Rothenberger’s respective bands to create something new, a mixture of heavy drones and spacious ambient, creeping darkness and eerie light. The additional textures brought to the table, such as the vocals of Rebecca Fasanello and the hammered dulcimer of Michael Tamburo, further elevate the release into transcendent realms.
Presented as a digipack CD. 2LP with download card to follow in the next 28 days, you can also purchase your copy and check out a stream of the track ‘Smokefall’ HERE.
