Cheaper! Stone Breath's first release since their triumphant return with "The Shepherdess and the Bone-White Bird" - "The Aetheric Lamp" finds them exploring similar territory to the expansive Middle Eastern influenced sounds of that previous record. Intricate and driving - half composed and half improvised - tense and intense - beautiful and terrifying. Thematically, the songs explore angelic spirits - but this is no New Age fluff - this holds more in common with the angels of the Old Testament and the works of John Dee. The inimitable Mike Seed and Language of Light bring a collection of songs drifting from the downright dark and haunting to the decidedly wyrd-folk imbued with a profound sense of introspection and occult mystery in melodies reminiscent of English folk ballad or early liturgical hymns. Language of Light, with what can only be described as avant-drone and folk strangeness, lend an ethereal backdrop to this elegant release.
This is a limited edition of 350 - a co-release with AntiClock Records.
