Limited edition blue vinyl, limited to 300 copies worldwide. The sophomore Seeming album, featuring a collaboration with Sammus.

"NEXT TIME LET'S GET RAISED BY WOLVES," bellows Seeming's new album, SOL. Subtitled A Self-Banishment Ritual, this second LP by the NY-based postgothic act breaks rich new ground: vintage funk and psychedelic soul swirl into unlikely harmonies with synth-driven pop, heady noise, and mercilessly post-human politics.

This is a landmark record by Alex Reed (formerly of ThouShaltNot; author of Assimilate: A Critical History of Industrial Music).

SOL bares fractured humanity, practices apocalyptic shamanism, raises the ghosts of 1970s pop, and ultimately claims a rare freedom.

Co-produced with Daniel Myer (Haujobb), SOL boasts guest appearances by Pitchfork favorite SAMMUS and Japanoise legend Merzbow.

Standout tracks include the outside anthem "Stranger," vocoder ballad "I Love You Citizen," the explosive "Talk About Bones," and "If I Were You," a song transcribed from a posthumous performance by John Balance (Coil) in a dream.
