The Nether Dawns : Songs For Autumn Suns : Cassette

The Nether Dawn is Antony Milton, a New Zealand musician who has been making records, exhibiting sound installations and performing live under a variety of nom de plumes since the early 1990s. He is also the curator of the PseudoArcana record label.

Songs For Autumn Suns mixes thick walls of dense tangled overblown guitars, garbled vocals, mysterious ghostlike melodies, epic expanses of pastoral washed-out spacescapes, huge drifts of shimmer and wide expanses of sun baked ambience. Delicate and crystalline melodies lurk innocently beneath thick swaths of sweet buzz or dash furtively and barely noticed through deep swells of rich rumbling sound. Notes soaked in reverb float lazily through twilit skies, like listening to the most beautiful music with your ears crossed, so everything is just a little bit fuzzy, a little bit smeared, notes become tinly little shooting stars, their tonal colors turned into little musical trails drifting into the ether, while guitars are stretched into soft gauzy sheets, everything warm and wonderfully dreamlike.

Available now in a limited hand made edition on Type II High Bias BASF Chrome Plus C40 in hand stamped triple panel argato-style sleeves + 8 track download. Buy from Nute Records / Trensmat (here)
