Album Notes
After the difficult dissolution of both a relationship and a previous band iteration, Nostalgist frontman Asa Eisenhardt took it upon himself to channel aggravation, heartache and self-questioning curiosity into five new tracks of ethereal, metallic post-punk (plus a cover of Catherine Wheel's "Texture") comprising Disaffection. With a refined focus on hooks, dubby basslines, and riffage, the mini-LP pushes the group's sound into darker environs still, and features longtime friend/drummer extraordinaire Aesop Dekker (Worm Ouroboros, Extremity, Khorada, ex-Agalloch) on session drums. For fans of the Chameleons, Killing Joke, Slowdive, Red House Painters and early Smashing Pumpkins.

The 140g black vinyl LP is packaged in a matte-finish jacket with insert designed by David Landis of Shake It Loose Graphics. As always, a download code is included as well.

"...a contender for album of the year...a stunning ode to under-celebrated post-punk treasures, a love song to the early 90s wave of hard-hitting shoegaze juggernauts, and a powerful exercise in the best aspects of modern metal." - Frank Deserto,

"Nostalgist’s ethereal sounds plod with a dub-infected swagger...however morose and downtrodden the music weaves, Disaffection carries a chiming character." - Jon Rosenthal, Invisible Oranges
