Gossiwor – Domestic Saga
The nebulous collusion of John T. Gast and Asger Hartvig (aka Copenhagen’s MC Boli) as Gossiwor produced the album Lighthouse last year. A time capsule of solemn, environmental rations in murky narrative quality, a pagan pilgrimage told with forlorn string rips and unholy orchestral swells, echoing drones of lighthouse calls and ships bellows, chugging downtempo odes of twinkling guitar and synths, penitent pipes, psychedelic chant and unspoken plea. A USB / digital-only oblation via UK goth purveyors 5 Gate Temple, selections from Lighthouse now appear on wax in the three-track piecemeal Domestic Saga. Beautiful and untold.
