The best new releases and classic re-issues on vinyl
To create their spellbinding sophomore record, Perfumed Earth, sisters Valentine and Clementine Nixon retreated to the woods of their native New Zealand. As Purple Pilgrims, the duo craft otherworldly electronic sounds cloaked in magic, mystery, and romance. There’s an earthiness to the group’s soft tendrils of guitar and soft fog of reverb. But while the record’s nine tracks evoke the dreamiest of dreampop, there’s darkness buried just beneath.
