24-bit audio masters -- A Bandcamp Exclusive!

A Cold White Universe EP is a wintertime exploration combining influences of prog, psychedelia, and space rock into something unique. The title cut features classic pink noise oscillations as well as piano ostinatos with a disturbing warmth provided by a variety of analog and virtual analog synths. Echoes of December is based on a improvisation centered on a synth arpeggiation and live drumming. Its psychedelic post-jazz feel is somewhat reminiscent of Quarkspace or even Tortoise.
