Mamiffer Vinyl, CD & tapes by Mamiffer at Norman Records
Thalassa is, in fact, William Fowler Collins paired with Aaron Turner of Isis and Sumac, working in a dark drone mode. Bonds Of Prosperity feels like it alludes to a wealth of the heavier genres (black metal, sludge metal etc.) without ever actually crunching into a song: it feels like the long eerie calm before a storm. Double LP on SIGE.
The new album from Mamiffer is a major work of probing, dark minimal beauty, with a sound pallette expanded with the help of collaborators including Eyvind Kang (the go-to strings man for dark experimental types including Sunn O)))) and Joe Preston of Thrones. Nice duotone printed sleeves for both CD and 2LP editions, on SIGE.
Their second LP following 2011’s Mare Decendrii, Mamiffer bring crepuscular drone to Statu Nascendi. A menacing Throbbing Gristle meets moments of blissed-out vocals which conjure imagery of something enthralling, beautiful and at times dangerous. 700 copies of the LP with a booklet and coloured vinyl.

Mamiffer is a group led by Faith Coloccia, apparently dedicated to crafting minimal monoliths of experimental metal. Members of bands including Isis, Earth, Circle make up the rest of her ensemble, so plenty of talent included on Mare Decendrii. Coloccia’s instrument is the piano, and it is certainly interesting to hear that instrument taking a leading role in this kind of music. Nice atmospheres.
