Release Date: August 26, 2016
The Stargazer's Assistant explore worlds beyond earthly light with a new double album. As with previous releases by Stargazer’s Remoteness of Light eschews and subverts genre identification, instead drawing the listener into an unfamiliar, richly atmospheric, and elemental sound world populated by bursts of freeform percussion, spectral melodies and seething, haunted airs.
The Stargazer’s Assistant: David J. Smith (Guapo, Cyclobe), David J. Knight (Shock Headed Peters, UnicaZ̈urn) & Michael J. York (Coil, Cyclobe)
“[…] illuminating and ethereal. Its mix of modern and ancient instrumentation gives rise to a sense of alien space technology made from organic materials, as 'Agents of Altitude', the first of three twenty-minute pieces, describes a launch from an enchanted forest." – The Quietus
“Within the realm of the senses, Remoteness Of Light bleeds like a stream of consciousness that grabs its richness from everywhere.” – Freq
“[…] drifts, dreams and wanders.” – Vanguard
The album comes as 2 X 180 gram vinyl, and a thick gatefold and printed inner sleeves with full UV coating.
NOTE: Track 4, "Birth of Decay" is a live recording exclusive to the double vinyl edition, and is unavailable for download.
