We're thrilled to share the latest addition to the family with the signing of Mid-Air Thief and the reissue of their electronic-infused folk album, Crumbling. Already released everywhere digitally, pre-orders for vinyl, CD, and cassette launch today, and will ship on September 20, 2019.
Although sung almost entirely in Korean, Mid-Air Thief's cult-acclaimed album Crumbling, exhibits a distinct universality, merging disparate sounds and styles into a cohesive, electronic-infused folk amalgam that tactfully blurs the lines between organic and synthetic. Listeners are led through enrapturing passages of swirling melodies underscored with eloquent plucks, strums, and bursts of bubbly glitches. Individual phrases drift into one another as if in a dream, cohered by guest vocalist Summer Soul's entrancing hooks and vocal soundscapes. Crumbling is a compelling accomplishment of both composition and production, bending as it does to its unique contours of consonance and dissonance, always resolving to a place of calm and beauty.
