amek047 Conjecture "∫V" CS


Order from Bandcamp.

"∫V" by Conjecture is a companion EP to their full-length LP "V" (Amek, 2019). In mathematical language the "∫" means "complete" and so the record contains previously unheard music, written during the recording sessions of "V". With this new EP Conjecture puts the final touches of what was started over a year ago with his vinyl debut for Amek but the music on the record also hints at what we are to expect of the project's future sound explorations. 

 Alongside three previously unheard solo pieces of Conjecture's signature introspective yet powerful take on post-industrial music, "∫V" features three guest interpretations of the same material. LATE, antechamber & Талос re-envision Conjecture's music and bring its already deep and nuanced sound to a whole new level. "∫V" is not a curiosity in the project's always-evolving body of work but a must-have for both new listeners and die-hard fans of his immersive music realms.

amek046 Leaver "Hands Like Cages" CS


Order from Bandcamp.

Three years after their previous record, Leaver return with "Hands Like Cages". Their new full-length album is a mixture of droning singer-songwriter music, this time more centered around vocals and lyrics, and even denser on textures and ambiance. "Hands Like Cages" was recorded in three sessions between 2018 and 2019. Those took place in Sofia, Bulgaria and Breda, The Netherlands. The album brings feelings of detachment but of togetherness as well and is more than suitable for everything that has happened to the world in 2020. More than ever are Leaver indulging in long-form pieces but those somehow still manage to feel intimate, accessible and welcoming for the listener.

Leaver is Angel Simitchiev & Daniel Donchov
Hands Like Cages was recorded by Mihail Slavov (Wind City Studio)
Mixed & mastered by Marius Costache (Studio148)
