Happy to announce the arrival of the Mamiffer & Circle "Enharmonic Intervals (for Paschen Organ)" 2xLP. It is available for pre-order in our webstore as of now, and the CD version (from Ektro Records), will follow shortly. Both formats will also be available in stores on Oct 15th. Preview tracks from the album may be heard on our Soundcloud page.
"Recorded over a single day at Keski-Porin Kirkko, the nineteenth-century stone church in the heart of Circle's hometown, the basic tracks for Enharmonic Intervals exude divine inspiration. Caressed by Faith Coloccia, Aaron Turner, Jussi Lehtisalo, and Mika Rättö, the house of worship's immense Paschen organ sets a liturgical, contemplative mood, which persists unabated through a cycle of improvisations and short compositions. The album opens and closes with slowly building sinfoniettas of sustained drone and flatlining feedback that shine heavenly light onto the wan, academic corpse of avant-garde minimalism. In the middle, all sorts of hell breaks loose: Coloccia chants wordless omens on a distant shore, Turner shouts his lungs out, Lehtisalo speaks in tongues from atop synthesized snowbanks, Rättö gargles operatic gibberish, hummingbird guitars flutter past, and delicate chords glisten like dewdrops on Arctic lichen."
***If you would like to see Mamiffer on The Alcest/Anathema tour, please arrive very early! We have been playing very early, within 15 to 30 minutes of doors, and many people who wanted to see us have missed us. Thank you and see you there ***
These tapes will be available on the tour, and at our SIGE store. (along with many re-stocks and several new releases)
