Having released her 'Melancoholic' 7" on American Tapes back in 2012, it was super special to have Sharon Gal play a solo set as part of Wolf Eyes' residency last year. 23.9.18 slinks around the demonic end of Gal's doings; kin to her work as Mami Wata (duo with Andie Brown) and Meltaot (with Edwin Pouncey). Bells and electronics summon malevolent birdsong and creatures lit by the light of a will-o'-the-wisp.
