3/4 do-CD ERS - CD008 third collab release of the new dutch drone stars! => 'On their new album, MENS and KOUW use a 12-meter magnetic string instrument and a modular synthesizer to create 6 carefully tuned pieces.

2 LP Moving Furniture Records MFR056 second "pure drone" collab by these Dutch artists, starting from almost nothing both long dronescapes evolve very nicely into a dance of pleasant micro-waves..."..continue their exploration of long-form drone.

However, an attentive ear will reveal a rich variety of resonances and sonic artefacts." - lim. 300, DL code 2019 €16.50
