Followers of the artist Mark Vernon will note a subdued and pensive mood on this new record. Monochrome and sepulchral, these tracks are in a minor key, a key which opens the door to a damp cellar of the imagination. Too-many legged spiders crawl over dusty violins. Time lurches, loops and echoes like excursions on slow motion railways in reverse. Concrète noir sombre séances for non-believers. Tauntological voices from the past provoke us. Half guessed ghosts, magnetic phantoms from funereal-to-reel tape recordings. The sibilant persistence of the deceased evokes the exhausted dread of waiting for a medical test result. Enigmatic messages thrown to the werewolves with nothing but cheap medication and some breathing exercises for support.

Caution: this record can cause dreamless nights.

“Psychedelic visions, blackouts and blinding lights reveal an unusual, sick, and feverish musicality... here the gods come back from the dead only to ensure us an existence nurtured by the freezing rays of a black sun.”

Massimiliano Busti, Blow Up (Feb 2022)
