about

The breathing on this was the death rattle of a friend of mine recorded into a cellphone the last night she was alive. At the time this song was coalescing, I was working graveyard shift doing hospice care as a nurse assistant. "Sundowning" is a form of dementia unique to Alzheimer's sufferers during the later hours of the night. I saw a lot of it on the job. This song is dedicated to all the elderly people I've cared for over the years who have passed on from this world. I'm tremendously lucky to have known all of you. -Myles

​Also the kitty cat purring is Iggy, the most beautiful, tall, grey man that ever lived and it is a memorial to him, may he rest in peace beneath the pear trees in the backyard. This was a sad song to write.. and to play. -Ayla​

Disemballerina Portland, Oregon

Disemballerina is not a metal band. Still, there’s something uncannily metallic about the group’s new album. The Portland- based ensemble plays chamber music using cello, viola, guitar, and harp, and the result is like a shiver of primordial apprehension vibrating just under the skin." -avclub

"In all honesty, it’s one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever heard." -Pitchfork
