Sontag Shogun, Telling Tales

Let's finish off the evening with this beautiful LP I stumbled across today from Sontag Shogun. Tale is a spectre of a record; a melding of piano, tape loops, echoes, ghosts, samples, field recordings, past regrets, future hopes. Its an album of so many layers that I'm finding myself drawn to a different song with each listen. It's hard to beat opener 'Tale', and things get decidedly weirder after the piano tuning in the middle - 'Orbit Insertion' and 'Beyond Wynd Gey' are intense outerwave trips - but there are many curlicues of delight to be found hidden in this release, and I aim to find them all. Tale is out now through Palaver Press - get it here.
