catalli "White Lake" was stuck in my head, without me being able to find it, for about 3 years. Now it's still stuck in my head. Favorite track: White Lake.

Balduranne Very relaxing album, with just a tinge of melancholy - like a warm cup of coffee on a gloomy, rainy day. Favorite track: White Lake.

Dotflac There is something beautifully sad in Pale Ravine.

Evoking a concealed soundtrack for old mute movies on reels, this album carries the weight of all life's burdens and deceptions, the fate of all our lost hopes and forgotten dreams. But it also believes in their redemption, whispering to those who listen that existence is not painted in black and white but in endless shades of grey.

And it's up to us to decide if we want to use brighter hues to fix the road of penumbra we walked until now. Favorite track: Thread.

2016 Miasmah edition of the now classic debut album by Deaf Center, originally released on Type records in 2005. Full-lenght album version, includes the tracks that were previously only on the CD edition + a 20 minute side of unreleased material from the same timeframe. Released as a gatefold 2xLP with original extended artwork.

‘Pale Ravine’ is the debut full-length realization of Erik K Skodvin and Otto A Totland under the Deaf Center moniker. More recently known for solo recordings under their own names on the Sonic Pieces label. The album, back then made in their mid 20ies, is an other-wordly sound collagé to Norwegian nature, theatricality and old silent films. The two musicians have looked deep into their own family histories to piece together a dusty and nostalgic epic, blending elements of classical and electronic music with an array of field recordings and a lot of fog.
