David Colohan – Arc of a Snowfall


A blissed-out electronic album from David Colohan (Raising Holy Sparks/United Bible Studies), one of two we release this month, side by side on CDR and digital. David says “Returning from a trip to Istanbul, the skies were clear & Europe was covered in snow. I spent hours gazing at the endless illuminated wilderness below, as if in a dream. Arc Of A Snowfall is an attempt to recapture that feeling.”

Made using Casio MT-400V, Korg MS-20 Mini & modular synthesizer through Binson Echorec EC3, Phonic Digital Echo Chamber PH6070, Shin-Ei ER-23 Echo Reverb Master, Boss Digital Delay DD-6, Boss Digital Reverb RV-5 & Boss RC-20XL Loop Station.

Recorded in Ballymahon, Ireland during February 2015.

Günter Schlienz – Collage Tristes

Another essential release from the master of analogue synths, Günter Schlienz. Blissful Autumnal liquid drones to overwhelm your mind, body and soul. Nobody can work those analogue synths like he can. When he first sent me the finished tracks, I locked the door, turned off the lights and laid down on my bed to listen and I never wanted it to end. It’s an absolute pleasure and an honour to have him release on Was Ist Das? and just like the Lo Imp CDRs from last time, each disc will have its own unique print art as well as a professionally printed sleeve. Buy now and get an instant download.

Lo Imp – Nosferatu


We’re trying out the CDR format for a change for this one, the debut release by Lo Imp. It is a trio consisting of Sam McLoughlin (Samandtheplants/N.Racker), Bridget Hayden (Vibracathedral Orchestra) and Jake Blanchard [Tor Press]. This captures their first public performance from Halloween 2014 where they created this unnerving soundtrack to accompany a screening of Murnau’s classic silent film “Nosferatu” in the atmospheric setting of Todmorden’s Unitarian Church. As you would expect, it’s synths, homemade instruments and the other worldly atmosphere of a gothic church in sub zero temperatures. Lights out for this one, please.

Limited edition of 52 with professionally printed insert. Each one has it owns unique custom label art.
