Nostromo 7

Though the name of the band Nostromo 7 attracts one’s attention like a clue, it’s the duo’s music itself which holds it, for their sound knows how to find its way in the dark – and in so doing it transfixes the listener. This is music pervaded by more than a little of das Grauenhafte, the dimension of horror that by virtue of innumerable exposures to works such as Murnau’s film (to which an homage is tendered in one of the videos in the playlist) has permeated all our minds from their beginnings, to the point of having become nearly our native element.
