about

Cardinal Fuzz are pleased to announce that this ghostly classic is getting a vinyl release. Previously available as a CD-r on the great Deep Water label, Lupus is released as double LP with new artwork in a gatefold sleeve.
Dead Sea Apes are a Manchester based trio with a big, dark sound that incorporates everything from space to drone to dub in its ambitious instrumental rockscapes. Now, given that these boys hail from the heartland of the Industrial Revolution in Manchester, it sounds like they have been spending far too much time in dark woodland forests.
Lupus is the band’s first full-length album, following two EP’s on the group’s own Soul Desert Records and a collaborative album with Black Tempest – The Sun Behind The Sun – released on Cardinal Fuzz. Compared with the muscular mini-epics on those releases, Lupus seems to emanate from a more ghostly dubbed-out post-punk/kraut aesthetic. Lupus is at once meditative, elliptical and mysterious.
Lupus took shape in August 2011 as an experiment in improvising on drones and loops, followed by varying amounts of editing and further recording using the same methodology as DSA heroes - CAN. The immersive outcome ranges from ambient cloud to massive crunch via elliptical extended rhythms and creeping effects, all shot through with a hovering ominous presence.
Seven tracks, 57 minutes.
