NEW LP OUT ON BLACK TRUFFLE!
(Sold out! Digital still available on Bandcamp)
OUTSIDE LUDLOW / DESERT DISCO
“Against the dusty drift of the tape, its rawness and brutality is startling” – The Wire
“Dunscombe has crafted two works of mesmeric and haunting ambient beauty that hearken back to their source and look forward to transformation and rebirth.” – The Sound Projector
“Its layers dynamically weave to reveal a tapestry seemingly depicting associations of manifest destiny and its post-apocalypse in the desert. The violent progress of military and mining and trains and western religion across the desert matching and exceeding that hostile environment’s desiccating heat, disintegrating wind, bold exhibition of death in its preservation of bones to mold a scape of desolation reflected in this bleak sound.” – harmonicseries.substack
