Canadian collective Esmerine have released a surprise album called Everything Was Forever Until It Was No More which is out now digitally and on CD and LP on August 26th. According to the press release, it channels existential tensions between atmosphere and airlessness, seclusion and claustrophobia, forbearance and coalescence. In many ways it is one of Esmerine’s most restrained records; instrumental densities ebb and flow, melding into each other with gauzy timbral warmth, sometimes tracing fleeting tendrils outwards, but always rotating around a saturnine gravitational force.
