Dark Hour MP3

Apophasis by Caul is the latest release from the estimable netlabel. It’s a single, nearly hour-long track of pop-minded decay, all the threatening ambience of a horror film with none of that bothersome plot (MP3). Dark Winter also includes downloadable cover art with its releases, should you want to print out a booklet and burn the files (or, this case, single file) to CD. The art for Apophasis (JPG), done by the musician, is a contemporary spin on Brueghel. Imagine the Tower of Babel drawn by Dave McKean or Ben Templesmith and you’ll have a sense not only of the art, but of how the track sounds. More info and music at
