You can hear the track “Benjamin’s Song” from Kloster’s album Half Dream, Half Epiphany through the youtube link below:
Half Dream, Half Epiphany is out tomorrow in the US on cd through Burnt Toast Vinyl and on cassette through Crime & Punishment Packaged Goods. The album borrows from apocalyptic folk by way of Current 93 and World Serpent related bands as well as the baroque folk of Sufjan Stevens, among other influences.
Kloster are from Copenhagen and there are two reviews for the album available now:
Gaffa gives Half Dream, Half Epiphany 6 out of 6
Gfrock gives the album 5 out of 6.
Check them out, though they may prove to be a bit difficult to read depending upon your proficiency with the Danish language.
There’s also an interview with Mikael from Kloster on stovt.dk about the album and its relationship with beer since the cassette is being released on Crime & Punishment Packaged Goods. There’s also a little bit more about the connection between Burnt Toast Vinyl, beer, Kloster, and Crime & Punishment Packaged Goods in this interview at stovt.dk (in English!) and this interview at stovt.dk.
Many great friends have participated in this release and we’re very excited to have you hear it!
