New Gods

Fortuna POP!

Bass Clef

Acid Tracts


“In hindsight I’m not 100% sure how I made some of these tracks, of which noises came from what, of which cables went where, et cetera,” he recalls. “I do remember it, though, as a special weekend of total solitude and immersion, with the moon rising high and shining bright into the studio windows.”
