    Two studio recordings by Petit Mal for this release. "Passover" being a longer, ash-blackened piece of deep pulses and malcontent feedback bursts. "Other Fields" features another appearance of piano layered over field recordings in an empty warehouse in South SF, and was also the basis for an interactive sound installation by Kaiser at 21Grand. This will not be repressed after it sells through.

    Includes unlimited streaming of absolution via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
