Mamiffer have announced their forthcoming LP, The World Unseen, for release via SIGE Records in March 2016. Light and dark, stark and slight, their music has grown ever stronger in its ability to captivate across longform passages. Their amorphous approach enables them to make deft atmospheric shifts from breathless isolation to life-affirming absolution, a key signifier of their otherwise variable sound. Slow without resorting to doom platitudes, theirs is a powerful and lamenting force - a prairie emptiness punctuated with single shots and tangible melodies, encased in folds of chorale disintegration and nuanced abstraction.
"If you must have a language, let it be one whose quantity cannot be reduced to a single sound, one that moves without displacing, that describes without being written, that knows the letter and yet is the spirit and has the spirit to be without recourse to visibility, that is made of time and not altered by time, that knows neither childhood or age, neither the tongues or the teeth that gnaw at foreign languages, that gives birth to itself, whose soul is everywhere and nowhere, that is free in its coupling. Air cut out of air… a motive force of infinity… and the world will be music… where birth and death overlap." -Hélén Cixous
