Alethe/Moscow Moon/Sapporo Sun – Untitled (Holy Geometry 014)
In just over a year Russia’s Alethe has quickly made a name for himself on European tape labels Perfect Aesthetics, Strange Rules, Audio. Visuals. Atmosphere and, with another release this very month, Archive (formally Autumn Archive).
His noisy but beautiful and melodic textures are ever-present here and are complimented on this tape’s B side with a debut from Moscow Moon / Sapporo Sun (a collaborative project between Viktor Zhigulskiy (Alethe) and Japan-based American musician Justin Gambino).
Moscow Moon / Sapporo Sun retains Alethe’s delicate distortions whilst adding touches of Gambino’s guitar into the mix.
