THE MYSTERY OF HEAVEN (2017 reissue)

sacred bones



limited gold lp + download

Released: 8th Sep 2017

£21.99


Van Wissem's work comes from a tradition of avant-garde minimalism & lends itself well to the director’s stark cinematic works.

Jarmusch has played guitar in bands on & off since the late 70’s. Van Wissem’s compositional style involves hypnotic circular musical phrases that allow for a lot of contemplative space between the notes. "The sound of the lute is as bright as the sun, a beautiful red colour & my stuff sounds sort of like the moon, more like blue, like mercury” says jarmusch. recorded in New York with help from hypnotic Tilda Swinton on guest vocals, this is a captivating record.
