The otherworldly and long awaited debut album from Montreal-based psychedelic post-rock artisans, LAE. Featuring musical contributions, production, and lead vocals from Steve Austin (Today is the Day.) Recorded entirely in analog on a vintage Neve console.
"...the band has created an ideal atmosphere, borrowing liberally from the likes of Slint and Tortoise with mesmeric rhythms and askew harmonies, while adding dollops of psych and occasional metallic bombast...Some songs initially come off as innocuous experimental jams, but congeal into focused and meticulous pieces after a few listens." -Shane Mehling, Decibel Magazine, 8/10 Album Review
Recommended for fans of Three Mile Pilot, Swans, Sonic Youth, Unwound, Slint, Shellac, and more.
