about

It's like a quiet world concentrated on the beauty and the darkness of artists such as Sigur Rós and Jóhann Jóhannsson.

'Tale' is the debut album from Sontag Shogun, an combination of analog and digital electronics + piano project based in Brooklyn, New York, comprised of former members from [the] slowest runner [in all the world]. Even before releasing the album, they had already toured extensively in the US, Canada, EU, etc., where they drew the attention of many listeners, and now they'll release the debut album 'Tale' on Palaver Press and Ricco Label.

The album has been crafted by mixing lush piano melodies, with an electric sound to colour their quiet world, and vocals that engage the heart and mind of all listeners. Just as Maurice Utrillo was referred to as the "painter of white" in the past, Sontag Shogun draw their unique terrene using a palette of sounds. Once you connect to the tunes of surpassing beauty, you will find that you are removed from the physical world which you have been living.

You'll be able to get Sontag Shogun's 'LTFI' EP and Ricco Label 's music catalogue CD for free if you buy their 'Tale' album CD which will be released on 10 June, on our web store! These are limited in number.
