About this item

With a sound too inclusive to be simply labelled 'folk' Philadelphia's Espers have created their second album of eerie shimmering psychedelia, layered with familiar sounds and haunting, medieval harmonies. Introduced by subtle rattling chimes and electronic tones the pace remains sombre throughout, where gently picked, lilting melodies retain their sinister content. Using a myriad of instruments, the effortless ebb and flow is simultaneously archaic and timeless. Be prepared to be both calmed and disturbed as sheer melancholic beauty washes over ominous drones until the final drifting textures fade.
