アンジュ Soundtrack to the apocalypse. Horns blare and noise vibrates your bones. A duo to be reckoned with. Favorite track: Western horn.

ronnie dion i really dig this, especially the first track... makes me think sunn should do more jazz-oriented material. Favorite track: Let there be light.

Ken Goodey I've had the track Western Horn on a playlist since this release came out - downloaded it from somewhere, possibly even legally - and finally getting to listen to the whole album was a real joy. Only problem is that at 35 minutes, this album is too bloody short! I think this is a wonderful collaboration that could have and should have delivered more material. Terrestrials feels like side one of at least a full album, if not a double. Favorite track: Western horn.

Western horn 09:35


released February 3, 2014

a seared red sea
dead history is
delivered and divided
in the line of the nile
pythagorean egypt
raised the house
of hades and the dead
opened the book
in sinai sin is a
golden nature
a liminal animal
existing in exile
for forty years
the desert rests
listen silent
let the letters tell
