New album: The Rest Is Noise

The Rest Is Noise is based on Tuesdays Post performances from April to October 2014. Thom Yorke may just have upstaged us with an 18 day long song, but it's hard to imagine anyone being able to listen to that in one session. Whereas The Rest Is Noise - short by comparison at just under 4 hours - is a virtual boxed set, edited and mastered for your extended listening pleasure. It's the evolving live Darkroom sound captured and distilled, from serene ambience to noise furnace, together with photography for each piece by new collaborator Israel Denadai.

Two reviews on Sonic Curiosity

Our most recent two releases have been (favourably) reviewed by Sonic Curiosity.

“These compositions are designed to establish passive soundtracks for the listener, tuneage rich with a dreaminess. They instill a infectious calm more than inspiring any introspection, though. While the overall temperament of these tunes is distinctly gentle, at times the instruments evoke a certain yearning that tends to exemplify an undercurrent of intensity locked beneath the surface.”
