We're finally ready to unveil our latest sub-label in the shape of ambient, drone and experimental electronics offshoot Lobster Sleep Sequence.
After label head Jimmy Asquith came across Thet Liturgiske Owäsendet's immense ambient epic 'Catalina' on Soundcloud, it soon became a staple cure to a bout of recent prolonged sleeplessness and mild insomnia that he'd been unable to shake via any other means.
The decision to press on vinyl wasn't a light one - sitting at 46 minutes, Catalina had to be chopped and faded into two parts to make it remotely curable for vinyl - and having Rashad Becker at the helm of the mastering truly brought out the the textures, facets and finer details of this epic masterpiece.
It's a slow burning showcase of slowly evolving sonic substances and memories; a dense fog on a barren land steadily revealing the artefacts and objects hidden behind rocks and beneath the shadows; a static art piece hanging for months in a gallery rarely visited, allowed to decay into a beautiful immersive, solitary existence.
This release is mastered and cut by Rashad Becker in two parts, pressed onto heavy 180g wax with an LSS logo hand-stamped centre, encased in a black matte silver screen-printed sleeve, including a B&W matte A6 postcard insert.
