about

“Trying to describe the works of Sebastian Melmoth is a Sisyphus task if there ever was one. Just when you think you’ve figured them out, they throw something new into the mix and you’re back where you started. Through these 30 minutes of music, we’re treated to post-rock vibes, psychedelic ballads, epic dirges, motor-driven acoustic dance music, twitching post-punk, all wrapped in a distinctly intellectual package. What makes them all that more alluring is that they somehow manage to make this bewildering melting-pot of styles gel, and seem completely natural.

Added as digital bonus tracks, are three remixes. DTT twists 'Presley Honey' into blissful chamber pop, Bass Clef adds an even more peculiar atmosphere to 'Prosopagnosia', and in the hands of Jonas ‘cup MT’ Golland the same track is turned into what can only be described as Art House.“
