Reissue of the Birds Of Passage collaboration record with Leonardo Rosado from 2011. A minimalistic, cinematic, experimental dark pop trip, like a technicolor soundtrack that traces a vivid path through darkened desolate dunes. Lim. 300x.
Masterworks of minimalism and glacial beauty. The cold minimalist-drones, distorted field recordings, and sparse instrumentation, illustrate an icy, desolate and dark world with allusions to dark-pop and classic broken-folk.
A masterwork of minimalism, "Winter Lady" sees a return to desolate and melancholic soundcscapes in an endearing invitation into Alicia's fragile world, through her emotional euphoria and agony in a further commitment to musical experimentation.

Black Nail Cabaret’s new EP reminds us, with a dark pop & catchy upbeat tune, that you can run but you can’t escape yourself. Remixes from Crackdown, DSX and Celldöd spice this EP up with a wide variety of 80’s Pop, Electronic, and Techno sounds.

Monstrous and surreal, the album is a strange mix of Black Metal, Noise and dark, post-modern lyrical themes. Comparisons range from ’90s Post-Rock like Slint to fellow Post-Black Metal brethren Deafheaven.
Bosse-de-Nage eschew the sprawling arrangements and hypnotic repetition of their previous efforts in favor of tight, propulsive song structures, deliberately succinct in approach yet maintaining their unique lyrical style set to unpredictable melodies.
