Pierrot Lunaire- Theme for Ascension and Eternal Love 7"

Pierrot Lunaire- Theme for Ascension and Eternal Love (HIV104)

Since we first introduced Pierrot Lunaire to the world, via his mind-altering masterpiece debut, Turn Back the Hands of Time, we felt it was only right to release his first work on vinyl as well. More of a miniature album than a single, this 7” is the total manifestation of Pierrot. Leading off with a sidelong sax and electronics slow burner, Lunaire guides you gently down the rabbit hole as disembodied vocals and junk oscillations begin to soar and collide around you like psilocybic fireworks. On the B side, we’re guided through a labyrinthian tapestry of cut-up waltzes and ballads. All the while, Lunaire croons maniacally; a mythic cosmic joker.
