about

Released on cassette on Celebrate Psi Phenomenon, Sep 2020
Reissued on cd in June 2022.

Pefkin has been blurring the edges of the known world for longer than living memory as far as Im concerned. Those who have sought her out in secret corners have more than likely disappeared into the fog and have been scarce on tales if they returned. Her music is like the primal song of landscapes, creaking out their delerious hymns over immeasureable lengths of time, at once raw as the bedrock they are hewn from and yet worn smooth by the unceasing lapping of waves over aeons into shapes so smooth and delicate they dare you to experience them as the work of a Creator. This fine cassette is a mere trace of an unrivaled bliss deeply at odds with these times of chaos and uncertainty.

Review from Record Crates United:
"... a hauntingly beautiful mini-release of darkly ambient folk music.
Brogan ... blends her spectral vocalizations with creaking and droning strings, tense synthesizers and other astral sounds to create soundscapes that belong in a mystical Del Toro film soundtrack.
Hovering somewhere between the astral folk magic of Pantaleimon and Alison Cotton’s spooky The Girl I Left Behind Me, this is a record made for the fall and for being around nature. So be sure to pick this up (click here) and enjoy it out amongst the autumn foliage."

Review from Terrascope:
"Containing three long droning tracks, fans of Gayle Brogan will not be disappointed as “Eddying” floats in on a ripple of drone and field recordings, Gayle's voice at its sweetest as she paints pictures to accompany the sound. As the track moves forward the sounds writhe and entwine, creating a serenely textured soundscape with a hint of the discordant, the music changing as it flows, the drone ever rising becoming more dissonant as time passes.

Continuing in the same vein, “Deep Sea Deep Time” is like floating in the middle of a vast ocean, absorbing everything around, living in the moment, safe yet completely alive. Again the voice adds a delightful sweetness to the piece, flashes of sunshine sparkling off the waves, rippling bass notes creating movement allowing the sounds to ebb and flow.

Finally, “Swan Wing Burial” takes into a magical realm, voice and instruments blending into plainsong atmospherics, the listener led through mystical cloisters adorned with roses and a glowing ambience. Truly contemplative, the piece demands that you listen intently, preferably with low lighting, a solitary pleasure that is blissful and very inviting."
