Violens: "Der Microarc"

The title "Der Microarc" may bring to mind steely Teutonic iciness - a rational tyranny of imperative emotionlessness - but that wouldn't be Violens' style. This is warm, nostalgic bliss of timeless melancholy, 60s AM haze and modern dream pop all wrapped into a concise, well executed package. Bonus points for recreating the famous "Subterranean Homesick Blues" cue card sequence using Rorschach-ian free associative imagery.

True is out May 15 on Slumberland Records.
