    Two solo tracks by the label lynchpin Jim Kaiser recorded in 2009. Levitation employs acoustic guitar over slowed spoke bowing, the other track includes piano (?!?), and translates loosely as "Kissed You". This release will not be repressed after these copies run out.

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