Casting dense shadows over the city of Singapore stand The Observatory, creators of compelling aural experiments.  The 4-piece paints vivid atmospheres by means of haunting field recordings, low-octave croons and inventive ambient textures.  Fans of Nick Cave, Wire’s post-punk efforts and Boris’ screeching metal albums will find comfort in The Observatory’s gloom cocoon.

Similar to The Legendary Pink Dots, The Observatory doesn’t take a lot of breaks between albums, and none of their full-lengths sound even slightly similar.  CONTINUUM is the group’s 9th album since 2004, and it’s a complete departure from 2014’s moody psychedelic Oscilla.  Honestly, each album is worth a focused listen, and now is as good of a time as any to start collecting their music.  CONTINUUM is limited to 250.
