Caustic Records and Musica Maxica peresents the vinyl version of its newest album “Nameless Sun” limited to 300 copies. This work explores otherworldly terrain where loss and mourning give way to the vast distances of interstellar space while personal esoteric reflection is eclipsed by the violence of stellar nuclear fusion. “Nameless sun” offer us “richly evocative dark folk style makes for a head-in-hand listening experience. Yes it’s dark and minimal, evoking solitude and loneliness but also magic and mesmerizing, soothing and restorative” (Vanessa Salvia, Invisible Oranges).
Aerial Ruin “soothing acoustic folk often sounds like a sun-dappled blend of Agalloch, Nechowen and Pink Floyd” (Kim Kelly, Noisey/Vice)
