Alternoia by The New False Gods Now Available

NOW AVAILABLE - "Alternoia" is the result of the collaboration between a group of prominent artists who create work under a variety of electronic sub-genres. Working as 7h3 n3w ƒ4£$3 90Ðz (The New False Gods), their divine skillz have produced a unique set of tracks that, in my mind, are truly evocative of the album title. What is great about this album is that each track is unique and contains elements of noise, jazz, dark ambient, etc. The elements have been masterfully mixed together to produce an album that is melodic, strange and otherworldly.
