Majeure 'Apex' LP
The LP format is limited to 1,000 copies, pressed onto audiophile-quality 100% virgin vinyl, and includes a high-quality MP3 download coupon.
Majeure returns with a blistering EP of seemingly limitless synth textures and seemingly endless drum fills. Majeure - the solo moniker of Zombi and Contact cofounder, A.E. Paterra - has built a reputation as one of North America's most interesting purveyors of synth-based rock music. Often overlooked is the fact that Paterra is also one of the world's premiere prog-rock drummers, a fact that is emphatically obvious on Apex. Over the course of three songs stretching nearly a half hour in length, Apex is an audacious, exhilarating exercise in maximum minimalism - a disorienting journey between dystopian reality and vintage video game illusion.
