Highly recommended.

"Think if the Shadow Ring finally play with ZNR, and together they invite Florence Shaw and Rowland S. Howard to do a non-commercial city pop record to be produced by Mica Levi. This LP cuts through the confusing digital entropic reality, in order to give you the necessary space to reflect while wandering subtly through field recordings, poetry, and voices that take you to different situations at the edge of memory and consciousness. There is a certain atemporality to this record. Or rather it puts you exactly at that moment where history is breaking in two. As if you were in SF in 1981, when Throbbing Gristle were disintegrating but a new beginning was also being constructed. Captivating nostalgia for a past, that you know you just have to let pass and move forward. No need to panic. ASMR melodies whisper to you that there is a future beyond our melting ground and that it is possible to crawl into the surface of a ragged society so you can keep going and build something different, something better and more honest. This is already marked in the name of the band which connects the dark undercurrent that goes through the record and refers to one of the most turbulent geopolitical Australian incidents in the last two decades. Witness K, was a highly decorated ASIS officer who revealed that in 2004 during the negotiations with East Timor for the extraction of oil and gas, the Australian secret service bugged East Timor's government and president's office so they could have the upper hand during the negations. Witness K is not about seeking discounted redemption, but showing that the ground is unstable, that this disintegrating society also offers the possibility of constructing a better future. The more you listen to it the more layers you discover and the more you get. Opaque in the most positive way, this record is necessary." - Mattin
