Krobak. Nightbound. /digi-pack/.


This music lets into – and then does not let go so easy. It seems quite chamber one, but with bright prominences of scale. There is enough sophisticated space, sometimes resembling M. C. Escher's drawings, to simultaneously relax and mobilize. Nightbound does not allow for dissolving in the melancholy trance, they request co-participation..
