Summer 2015 | Moons & Monarchs

LP (2015) | CD (2014) | VIDEO (2013)

The long awaited return of WHOTE is a spacious contrast to the first LP, ALIGN - heavy in atmospheres and dark nuances that carry the listener to new cryptic territory arranged by Thomas Watkiss, the sole force behind the project. The release cycle began with an HD video introducing a dreamlike state of images and sounds, framing expectations for the full length. MOONS exhibits a dedication to mercurial textures where drifting instrumentation meet dissonant reverb and distortion to deliver Watkiss’ most haunting and structured work to date.

LP: Hand-numbered; 001-100 on silver vinyl, 101-250 on black.
12" x 12" screen printed insert (only available with this format).
Features a bridged version of Necropolis and A Measurement of Wealth. CD: comes w/screenprinted cover, insert and 4+ tracks.
