Laniakea is the galactic gospel duo of Massimo Pupillo (Zu) and Daniel O’Sullivan (Ulver, Grumbling Fur etc.). Cosmic hymns and atomised riffs slowed and stretched to unveil a pantheon of sound drawing on a rich tapestry of influences ranging from the plainchant of Hildegard von Bingen to Alice Coltrane’s Ashram tapes to the monolithic bass frequencies of Godflesh.
The album comes as 180 gram vinyl (200 pink, 300 white), and a thick (350gsm) card stock with spot varnish, 5mm spine, and includes a 12-page booklet of additional artwork, lyrics and liner notes penned by Luke Turner (The Quietus). Also available as CD and digital download.
