RIYL: The Kevin Costner Suicide Pact

Label: Always Human Tapes

How to describe áglæca… Well, first, I’ll describe this album as something I should’ve come across three years ago. Now, I’d write “written about” but we weren’t allowed to cover cassettes just yet. Second, I’ll describe this as “star stuff.” This is like the eerie remains of a Oneohtrix Point Never album and a Kevin Costner Suicide Pact album. Disembodied, distorted, voices, drones from the darkest pits of hell, and sometimes the formation of stars. This album can sound like the apocalypse or a genesis depending on where you’ve landed. It puts you on that turquoise dot on the cover (frankly, I’m not quite sure what it is nor will I make myself look stupid by trying to guess), and you’re just floating along in the darkness. Whether you find light through a result of violence or a result of blessing is up to chance. Listen to áglæca below via the Bandcamp player and see what you think of it. Cheers!
