“Alone Among Mirrors” is a split release between Los Angeles, California’s BLACK MARE and Russian Federation’s OFFRET.
BLACK MARE’s “Woman the Throne” bleak, cold opening riffs chip against the previous silence like hammered chisel into centuries-old slabs of ice before opening up just before the ~2:00 mark, eventually revealing the cavernous domain of sonic textures beneath the dense exoskeleton. This track was conceived, written, and recorded around the sessions that produced the “Death Magick Mother” full length album.
OFFRET’S “We are Waiting” is the ominous summoning that its title infers. Air-siren-conjuring drones and deep, guttural organ tones topped with rattlesnake percussion instantly transport the ear and the mind to another land in another time. Russian lyrics effectively drive the concept home, as most listeners will find themselves strangers in an ominous setting before a triumphant second and third act unfolds from the midpoint on.

Here is my latest offering. Vinyl and cassette coming soon…
Directed by Timms, the haunting visual journey that comprises “Low Crimes,” is currently playing at Noisey who issues of the track, “…the slow-burn heroin blues of the track is made even more ethereal with Timms’s vocal, who shifts the song down an even darkly enchanting path. ‘Low Crimes’ is witchy, unique, and ultimately gorgeous stuff, and the video is similarly enthralling.”
