Masters of the dark arts Xander Harris and Jezzebeam join forces on the latest split tape for Pleasure Cruise Press.
Thematic evidence presents these two as two parts to a singular spell, a hypnotic journey through decayed identity and an acceptance of the afterlife's eternal embrace.
Xander Harris, seen here hot off the heel's of his latest LP "California Chrome" for Mogwai's Rock Action label, continues his decade long narrative of horror recreated through vintage and analog synth hardware. Dread and dance impulses emerge from relentless rhythms, while perpetual fog hovers weightless in the dark.
Jezzebeam, performing moniker of Michael Cockrell, takes control of the B-side, with a procession of guitar and synth acrobatics. Slow-burn motif's wander endlessly, creating palpable spaces to explore, a 360 degree view of the crypt. With patience and subtlety, Jezzebeam's side creates an abandoned hospital for shadows, where desire haunts the hallways.
