The joint project of Portuguese J. A. (Wolfskin, Karnnos) and A. Coelho (Sektor 304), aka Iurta, has readied its debut album, out now on Cyclic Law records.

Inspired by the works of J. G. Ballard and A. Tarkovski, Iurta’s first full length album deals with what the label calls “the fragmentation of identity, of a mind forged by short-circuited information processes”. You may expect a rather excellent mix of soundscapes built upon cascading drones, harsh textures and minimal sonic oscillations.

The CD version itself – which is available right here on Bandcamp next to the download version – comes in a 4-panels matt laminated digipak which is limited to only 500 copies!

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
