The Oracle to release debut full-length debut “Hypogeum” on August 14th 2020

Worcester, Massachusetts-based avant electronics project The Oracle will release its debut full-length debut “Hypogeum” this August, via Repose Records.
 
Inspired at once by the grandiosity of film scores and classical music, the bleakness of black metal, and minimalist ambient music, “Hypogeum” is dark and at times ritualistic with its themes and complimentary visuals touching upon the rise and fall of messiah-like figures and cult leaders.

Igorrr - Spirituality and Distortion

To start right off... wow! This album is great. It is a thrill ride from beginning to end. Orchestrations, choir chants, breakbeats, electronica, heavy guitar riffs, concertina/accordion, this album has just about all flavors of soundscape.
 
It’s heavy, there are lots of orchestrations, and the usage of electronica is great and tasteful. There are areas of chanting and choruses.

Louise Patricia Crane to release debut album “Deep Blue” on May 15th 2020

“Deity” is the debut single from vocalist and songwriter Louise Patricia Crane and transports the listener into an alternate world where “Dear Prudence” was tracked in the “White Album” sessions; a twilight place where the veil between life and death is at its thinnest, and the baroque sounds of 1980s avant-garde dream pop and guitar-driven 1970s progressive rock are natural bedfellows.
