the boys have released their TRANSITIONAL DOUBLE EP 'twilight dawn' today, signifying their shift from black magic to white magic: https://mrsnowproductions.bandcamp.com/album/twilight-dawn
previously we have been treated to 104 minutes of the dark stuff, in the form of 'uncanny valley'; you may witness it here and be scourged: https://visualdisturbances.bandcamp.com/album/uncanny-valley
in between times they released an improv album 'the witness' by USB stick, placed with dried flora into a miniature coffin and sent across oceans to twenty (of which i was 1. the coffin makes for a fine centrepiece & repository for other small items of numinous value, such as the pound coin from my family's xmas pudding a few years ago, won through clairvoyance): https://stabscotch.bandcamp.com/album/the-witness
the new record is two in one; the first sends off their former style in violent arrays of utter stress and shock, climaxing with an 11-minute ceremonial deathspin and then playing it out with a romantic ballad, 'scotch-style. the second is absolutely new, the pomp and glitz of being reborn in 2020 as young and in some violent way optimistic...there's going to be a full-album rendition at some point, but this point of flexion will suffice...for now!
