Four long tracks of slow-motion, trance-inducing sound.
rumblings. Deep swells and slow simmers. Mood music
for the space generation.
"...this is closer to the minimal recordings of fellow ambient
musicians like James Johnson, A Produce (his non-rhythmic side)
and Stephen Philips. However, Austere carves out their own niche
by suffusing the music with a unique organic unforced rhythm, which
is accomplished through the almost breath-like rising and falling of
the drone tones and washes of sound. [...] Never harsh or cold, even
at its darkest, the music on fade (as with all the music from Austere
I've heard) is created by artists who understand how to infuse
ambient music with deep beauty and more humanity than you would
think possible for this level of minimalism."

"[Lid]... made me think of Roach. The swells. The bell/hornish/breathing
tones. An extremely nostalgic sound for me."
