Description from Trevor Brubaker (Eyestrain Magazine):
The debut vinyl offering from both Kjostad and Ligature, the sounds contained on this split LP give you limited time to grasp the joy or the darkness before you're turned on your emotional head. If you're listening - attuned as deeply as your mind permits - field recordings, voice, radio, harsh teases, the world without man... they trickle in and out of your ears in tantalizing grace.
Ligature has steadily and excitedly evolved over its few short moments of existence. Influences have been shorn off and the project, as well, exists in a private-but-exposed place. Elements of spoken-word, heavier use of field recordings, and contemplative moods run rampant on these three tracks. Just like Kjostad, there's a bare intimacy running through the entire recording, even in moments that may seem to have a function of stirring up the listener's concentration. Hazy, periodically adrenalized, lingering on after the moment itself.
