Dusker, the latest from Michigan trio (and Ghostly artist) KILN, infuses the entire concept of electronic composition with an almost impossible organic sense, its lush songs packed with flourishes that appear and disappear, cycling, spilling and disintegrating across the stereo field. Entertainment Weekly, after choosing Dusker as one of its "Weekly Picks" and stamping it with a respectable "A-" went on to note that "...the beats flutter and fidget and ultimately hit as hard as anything a night club have to offer...guitars and keyboards echo and distort until they are barely distinguishable from the soothing whole..." and PAPERTHINWALLS observes KILN "...nodding to multiple genres without bowing to any, marrying digital and meatworld sounds so adroitly on Dusker that identifying sources is both irresistible and impossible..." [ full review here ]. Needless to say we are proud to be releasing an album of such subtle, hypnotic beauty. A DRM-free download of Dusker is available at the The Ghostly Store.
