Devastatingly beautiful album right here. Written and Recorded by Jonathan Fraser himself, except for the Bass which I played and recorded. This album expands on the sounds Jonathan explored in Stendhal and takes it to new places. More blastbeats, more acoustic guitars, more atmosphere, and more textures.

Another collaboration between Jonathan and myself. As someone who has also lost a parent to cancer I really felt that this was a special piece to work on and when Jonathan approached me about it I was on board immediately. I won’t say any more and instead will let Jonathan explain the meaning in his own words.
On May 3rd, I lost my mother, Terri Fraser, to glioblastoma. On August 11th, my family, friends, and I celebrated her life and made peace with her passing. At that ceremony, I played a new song that was dedicated to her and what she meant to me. This is that song. I included a portion of my memorial speech near the end.
Any if all purchases will go towards an endowed fund in my mothers name for glioblastoma research.

Written and Recorded by Jonathan Fraser himself, except for the Bass which I played and recorded. Jonathan is uber talented and creative, and this album is a testament to that. Simply magnificent songwriting and composition, amazing sense of melody, and somehow he keeps it cohesive when bouncing around between genres mid-song. This album has a little bit of everything, from post-rock to blackened gazeyness to blues shuffles. Overall I find it highly cinematic and atmospheric. It was a ton of fun to work on and I hope I did the music justice. Highly recommend checking this album out.
