Presenting ... "The Mist Itself Breathes (waag_rel152)" by Er Go


It's been a while since our last release and I wanted to ensure that we finished the year with this wonderful longform piece from er go.

It's been a tough couple of months for me personally and I can only thank Eric Goldman aka er go for his patience, having initially contacted me back in late September.

It seems almost fitting to release this album a week after the Winter Solstice ... for as we climb out of the darkness physically, we do so metaphorically too. The worst is behind us and we can look to brighter days ahead.

As for er go's latest on weareallghosts, "The Mist Itself Breathes" ... it is a wonderfully immersive longform ambient piece that reminds me of William Basinski's "The Disintegration Loops".

"The Mist Itself Breathes" doesn't require or demand your attention but it does reward your attentiveness ... it rewards you if you allow it in ... if you allow it to envelope and surround you.

Please put on some headphones and let the music in ... I certainly didn't regret it when I first listened to it.

As before, a 320kbps version of this release will be available, for free, over on Archive with a lossless version available on Bandcamp for ‘pay what you want’.
