"Ikot akpa ntim" c30 tape out now on ((Cave)) Recordings

edition of 100
After amazing releases on labels such as Housecraft, Existential Cloth, and Hooker Vision, Calypso Borealis returns with these sublime explorations of pure sound and emotion.  There is a wide range of instrumentation on display here, yet each piece coheres into the lyrical drift unique to this project.   Specters of melody loom on the periphery, yet are very much present, evoked at times by peals of feedback, while at others by gentle collisions of meandering tones.Get here
