Two sides of instrumental eerieness entombed within the black vinyl of this debut release from The Crooked Circle.

The Soulless Party emote a melancholic solitude somnambulising classical instrumentation over dark tones which sound like slowed down Wurlitzers. This haunting piece verges on dark ambient/classical whilst still carving out its own mournful terrain to wander into alone - The Black Meadow as psychological space.

'The Pavement Waltz' sounds like what might be playing on the carousel at The Carnival of Souls. This is anachronistic creepiness, an aural hallucination induced on the site of an old carny burial ground. Midway through, the track appears to end yet the main melody returns to play itself through backwards revealing it's palindromic nature. This infernal music has abandoned linear time altogether, navigating the grooves in directions of it's own making.
