Item ID: 521391

The Belgian folk/dronerock sextet Luster is definitely one of the few bands that gathered a reputation before most people heard them, but eventually manages to exceed the expectations. Started as an informal meeting around 2012 the band worked at a notorious slow pace. Throughout the years, we heard many releases by all the other projects of the band members. But Luster kept stubbornly quiet, archiving complete recording sessions that other bands would have released without hesitation. The only document of those first few years: the
split 10" with Hellvete. So instead of turning into a potentially prolific sextet, they really took their time to finetune their sounds, and turn into a tight but hazy sounding full band. Now, the result is something that doesn't quite sound like anything else. Cello, flute, harmonium and violin blend in with the traditional guitar-bass-drums trio - making them land on a unique spot at the crossroad where ancestral doom folk, heady dronerock and spacious pop seamlessly meet. Kind of the missing link between Mazzy Star, Pentangle, Broadcast and Enhet For Fri Musik. It's really that unique and
that good, both live as on record. Which you can enjoy in all its glory now. Edition of 150 copies in a very lush jacket: outer sleeves are screenprinted + letterpressed.

PEFKIN - MURMURATIONS

PEFKIN - MURMURATIONS

'Murmurations' sounds like a culmination of Pefkin's sound, and pretty much everything Morc Records stands for. You may recognize the bare-boned folk-influences used by e.g. Annelies Monseré or The Iditarod, the gritty experiments of a.o. Drekka and Circle Bros., the ... read more »
