Album of the Week – 1/11/19

This week we have a new release from A Winged Victory for the Sullen which is really quite exciting! It’s their first release since Atomos which is amazingly 5 years old! Ok, I’m not including their soundtrack work.

Other albums that nearly made the cut include Jeffrey Lewis & The Voltage and Gang Starr.

Album of the Weed – The Undivided Five by A Winged Victory for the Sullen

“Purveyors of contemporary ambient and electronic inspired music, A Winged Victory for the Sullen make a bold return on new album “The Undivided Five”. The pair, made up of Dustin O’Halloran and Adam Wiltzie, have created iconic film scores and forward-thinking ambient groups, releasing a series of game-changing records for Erased Tapes and Kranky. On “The Undivided Five” they rekindle their unique partnership for only their second piece of original music outside of film, TV and stage commissions, creating an album that channels ritual, higher powers and unspoken creative energies. Their fifth release (following their debut album, two scores and an EP), they embraced the serendipitous role of the number five, inspired by artist Hilma af Klint and the recurrence of the perfect fifth chord.”
