Spectral Lore and Mare Cognitum - Wanderers: Astrology of the Nine

This is one of this year’s most import­ant albums. To me, of course, but then again I have a long his­tory with The Wanderers—because that’s what planet means in the first place. Wan­der­ers across our heav­ens, bod­ies that seem­ingly defy the fix­ed­ness of the stars, per­son­al­it­ies. But maybe the Wan­der­ers will be import­ant to you too.

Apostils Against Hegemony, Vol. I: Transitive Properties

It feels close. It feels like a warm reminder that there are many of us out there with a shared love for musical expres­sion and exper­i­ment­a­tion. It is a cul­ture where our ϙueer pre­oc­cu­pa­tion with sex and death is not just lived but cast through a vari­ety of cre­at­ive lenses, and I love it.
