Isengrind is Solange Gularte, one half of enigmatic French duo Natural Snow Buildings. This uncanny masterwork is a stunningly beautiful affair like rain in the wilderness. Almost hints of Popol Vuh’s work for Herzog or even Vangelis’ Blade Runner soundtrack but invoking the landscape of their rural French retreat. Solange’s classical training shines through on this one.
Strictly limited edition of 100 made for the Natural Snow Buildings 2014 European tour. Directly dubbed from the master to tape with a double-sided inlay featuring Solange’s unique artwork. Flesh pink cassettes in cream shells.

“This is Isengrind at her very best, and while certainly her masterpiece under the name, it’s perhaps also the finest work in the genre” – The Quietus
“Underflesh exists somewhere between Hosianna Mantra-era Popol Vuh, the sunbleached acid folk of Linda Perhacs and the haunted European exploitation soundtracks of the late Jean Rollin, with an impossibly ancient and otherworldly atmosphere married to future synth stylings and visions of Europe endless. Recommended. ” – Volcanic Tongue
