ALBUM RELEASE // Lightning Dust ‘FANTASY’ Out Today

 

 

Happy release day! Lightning Dust’s new album ‘Fantasy’ is out today online and in stores! ‘Fantasy’ is a followup to the group’s 2009 release, ‘Infinite Light’, and is available now from Amazon, iTunes, SC Distribution, and your local record store. Also, if you missed them the other day check out these fantastic remixes of “Loaded Gun”.

The first critics have weighed in on ‘Fantasy’:

Lightning Dust’s giving close attention to details of composition, resisting the temptation to stretch material or ideas too thinly, has brought about an album of ambition and maturity, of subtle shades of darkness and light, of promise fulfilled.
- RAY HONEYBOURNE for The Line Of Best Fit

With Siinai: Heartbreaking Bravery

“The result is a blend of startling lyrical depth and slow, whirlpools of murky music.” Consequence of Sound

Where Krug’s output in the late 2000s was virtuosic and volatile, Bravery is poised and comparatively stoic. The record functions on tension and, for the most part, does so brilliantly. PopMatters

“Juggling minimalism and majesty, Krug elegantly conducts every one of Siinai’s fluttering, kosmische pulses into the numb room behind his sternum. No wonder his heart is breaking.” A.V. Club

RICHARD YOUNGS’ Under Stellar Stream Out Today

RICHARD YOUNGS’ Under Stellar Stream is out today on Jagjaguwar. The release is a collection of neodruid hymns and chants for the minutiae of homelife and fatherhood — poetic transcendance through repetition and a focus on the (seemingly) micro. For more than 20 years, the UK’s Richard Youngs has been at the forefront of progressive minimalism, through solo home recording projects; through collaborations with the likes of Simon Wickham-Smith and Makoto Kawabata (of Acid Mothers Temple); and in special live performances playing bass with Jandek. Leaving a very human fingerprint on even the most far-reaching experimentations, Youngs has built a extensive, intriguing catalogue that just begs one to go deep.

Pick up Under Stellar Stream at your local record store or order online HERE.
