Mothlite - Dark Age album FLAC

With their debut album, The Flax Of Reverie, Mothlite reflect both the form and process of Brakhage?s work, propelling listeners down the rabbit hole into a world of wilderness and wyrd that is at once English and entirely other. This project so far has one release to it's name: The 2008 production The Flax Of Reverie. There isn't much to say about this album. Mothlite's sophomore effort is, well, dark. Dark Age" is certainly dreary and very electronic. However, there isn't actually a whole lot going on here. The album has some very good bits throughout its eleven tracks. That's the strange thing here: I can't really pick out an excellent track because most of the tracks have brilliant portions, but then the rest of the track will be average. It's a weird predicament.

Dark Age, the follow-up to 2008's The Flax Of Reverie, was rated as one of the top 50 albums of 2012 by The Quietus, who described it as, 'a startling, frank examination of the human (and perhaps especially male) condition delivered via synth bombast and towering choruses' . Mothlite is the brainchild of Daniel O’Sullivan (Ulver, Æthenor, Miracle,Grumbling Fur) and the single is taken from Dark Age, the band's second album which was released earlier this year on Kscope.
