Out today via Black Verb Records is a fantastic, moody, bleak, and spine tingling LP by Suir, a duo from Deutschland’s Frankfurt am Main. Together both Denis Wanic and Lucia Seiss compose a processional dirge that evokes the atmosphere of a mournful and paralytic dream—where every contrasting line and edge is embossed with gray. Ater is dark ambient psychedelia post-punk at its best. …
