Xquisite Releases is proud to present the debut album by The Fertile Crescent
The singular style of Laroche’s sound comes to a calamitous head in paridaiza, forging the basis of a sound the artist calls ‘Dungeon Debke’.The dungeon is felt, the walls and claustraphobia of emotion and darkness are eminating from each track but something is trancended and a place that could have meant torture or imprisonment becomes an escape into the beauty of ritual meditation and immanence.
6G is the child of a hollow moon, unwritten histories of permaculture deities in the levant, pagan conspiracies about haunted birthrights, texts buried in lunatic obscurity, communication with the evil smile of a goddess, bells designed to be wrung three times in the night, childish blood games, farmers with occult crops.
Incivility is the third EP from London artist Susu Laroche. Characterized by its relentlessly dark sound and dabke-inspired aesthetic, the release explores the artist’s recurring interest in melodrama, ritual, and catharsis.
Over 5 tracks Laroche unfurls a trance like ritual, unrelenting debke synths vying for space within doomed percussive landscapes, a soundtrack to the immersive visual world developed in their film and photography practices.
