Wanderwelle – Black Clouds Bury the Cliffs at Sea (Important, CD/digital)

What’s the sound of the climate crisis? In the case of the Amsterdam collective Wanderwelle, it is as beautiful as it is ominous. As the first part of a planned trilogy, the album »Black Clouds Bury the Cliffs at Sea« resorts to foreboding tones, dense wind textures and powerful drones, but there is still an undeniable aesthetic appeal to all of that—which only makes it all the more eerie, of course.
