Artist: THISQUIETARMY
Title: Vessels
Label: AURORA BOREALIS
Catalogue Number: ABX051
Formats: CD & LP
Release date: 28 March 2011

Montreal's thisquietarmy create sublime yet massive walls of beautiful shimmering drone, at times with a near pop sensibility, at others near Industrial in its percussive bombast.

'Vessels' explores themes of the sea and man's struggle with this relentless and all pervasive force, the music a perfect means of expressing both the flat calm and the force 9 storm. Eric Quach, the man behind thisquietarmy, is a prolific artist, and 'Vessels' is perhaps his most impactful work to date. 'The Pacific Theater' grips the listener in warm drone before slamming them into the rocks with epic percussion. Album closer 'A Spanish Galleon' takes a more gentle approach with clean guitar and washes of orchestral strings.

For fans of: NADJA, JESU, AUN, AIDAN BAKER.

The album is presented as a digipak CD and as a limited edition 180g LP in vellum style folder sleeve, 350 copies worldwide.
