E'sPsychedelicBreakfast I finally felt like getting this album right after pre-ordering 'Soy Dios'. Still don't know why I didn't let the Dead Sea Apes in my Bandcamp collection earlier. Such a hidden gem of music, just like any song/album of them so far. Favorite track: Pharmakon.

Terrific album,this;atmospheric,moody and slowly unravelling; Dead Sea Apes remind me a bit of Guapo and Earth in their approach (that's a big compliment as far as i'm concerned)...unpretentious, genuinely explorative and a little bit portentous...just right!

ProgHog231 Interesting ambient, post-rock album that is perfect when you have time to listen to some quieter music that unwinds slowly. Good headphones recommended. Favorite track: Wolf Of The Bees.

about

Cardinal Fuzz are pleased to announce that this ghostly classic is getting a vinyl release. Also available as a CD-R on the great Deep Water label, Lupus is released as double LP with new artwork in a gate-fold sleeve.

Dead Sea Apes are a Manchester based trio with a big, dark sound that incorporates everything from space to drone to dub in its ambitious instrumental rockscapes. Now, given that these boys hail from the heartland of the Industrial Revolution in Manchester, it sounds like they have been spending far too much time in dark woodland forests.

Lupus is the band’s first full-length album, following two EP’s on the group’s own Soul Desert Records. Compared with the muscular mini-epics on those releases, Lupus seems to emanate from a more ghostly dubbed-out post-punk/kraut aesthetic. Lupus is at once meditative, elliptical and mysterious.

Lupus took shape in August 2011 as an experiment in improvising on drones and loops, followed by varying amounts of editing and further recording, the methodology inspired by DSA's heores CAN. The immersive outcome ranges from ambient cloud to massive crunch via elliptical extended rhythms and creeping effects, all shot through with a hovering ominous presence.
Seven tracks, 57 minutes.
