Vinyl LP pressing. 2012 debut album from Billow Observatory - the duo comprising Danish producer Jonas Munk AKA Manual and Auburn Lull guitarist Jason Kolb - is a record that has been nearly a decade in the making. The album's sounds are almost exclusively analog in origin, crafted painstakingly into all manner of textures - as Kolb explains, "This record is extremely guitar heavy, which may surprise people. A lot of my guitar parts were actually recorded with amps & mics and then treated & re-treated." This material as sounding as if it comes from surroundings rather than from hands touching instruments.
