Earlier in the summer news that :zoviet*france: and Fossil Aerosol Mining Project had a collaborative album on the way from alt.vinyl was met with much excitement around here. This outtake indicates it’s going to be something special. That “North of North” didn’t make the final cut is impressive. This ghostly piece of music sounds as if it was transmitted from deep within the earth by some unknowable ancient force. Cryptic tones are scratched out of dust while infinitely stretched melodic passages become passing blurs until a voice in the darkness emerges to warn away any trespassers. I can’t wait for the album to be released in October.
